Affected Products:
                    SUSE MicroOS 5.1
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Realtime 15-SP3

   An update that solves four vulnerabilities, contains one
   feature and has 23 fixes is now available.


   The SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP3 kernel was updated to receive various
   security and bugfixes.

   The following security bugs were fixed:

   - Unprivileged BPF has been disabled by default to reduce attack surface
     as too many security issues have happened in the past (jsc#SLE-22573)

     You can reenable via systemctl setting
   /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_bpf_disabled to 0.
   (kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled = 0)

   - CVE-2021-0941: In bpf_skb_change_head of filter.c, there is a possible
     out of bounds read due to a use after free. This could lead to local
     escalation of privilege with System execution privileges needed. User
     interaction is not needed for exploitation (bnc#1192045 ).
   - CVE-2021-31916: An out-of-bounds (OOB) memory write flaw was found in
     list_devices in drivers/md/dm-ioctl.c in the Multi-device driver module
     in the Linux kernel A bound check failure allowed an attacker with
     special user (CAP_SYS_ADMIN) privilege to gain access to out-of-bounds
     memory leading to a system crash or a leak of internal kernel
     information. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system
     availability (bnc#1192781).
   - CVE-2021-20322: Make the ipv4 and ipv6 ICMP exception caches less
     predictive to avoid information leaks about UDP ports in use.
   - CVE-2021-34981: Fixed file refcounting in cmtp when cmtp_attach_device
     fails  (bsc#1191961).

   The following non-security bugs were fixed:

   - ABI: sysfs-kernel-slab: Document some stats (git-fixes).
   - ALSA: hda: fix general protection fault in azx_runtime_idle (git-fixes).
   - ALSA: hda: Free card instance properly at probe errors (git-fixes).
   - ALSA: usb-audio: Add Audient iD14 to mixer map quirk table (git-fixes).
   - ALSA: usb-audio: Add minimal-mute notion in dB mapping table
   - ALSA: usb-audio: Add Schiit Hel device to mixer map quirk table

   - ALSA: usb-audio: Use int for dB map values (bsc#1192375).
   - ARM: socfpga: Fix crash with CONFIG_FORTIRY_SOURCE (bsc#1192473).
   - auxdisplay: ht16k33: Connect backlight to fbdev (git-fixes).

   - bpf: Add kconfig knob for disabling unpriv bpf by default (jsc#SLE-22573)
   - bpf: Add kconfig knob for disabling unpriv bpf by default (jsc#SLE-22574)
   - bpf: Disallow unprivileged bpf by default (jsc#SLE-22573).
   - bpf: Disallow unprivileged bpf by default (jsc#SLE-22574).
   - bpf: Fix BPF_JIT kconfig symbol dependency (git-fixes jsc#SLE-22574).
   - bpf: Fix potential race in tail call compatibility check (git-fixes).
   - btrfs: block-group: Rework documentation of check_system_chunk function

     modifications (bsc#1192896).
   - btrfs: fix memory ordering between normal and ordered work functions
   - btrfs: update comments for chunk allocation -ENOSPC cases (bsc#1192896).
   - cgroup/cpuset: Change references of cpuset_mutex to cpuset_rwsem
   - config: disable unprivileged BPF by default (jsc#SLE-22573) Backport of
     mainline commit 8a03e56b253e ("bpf: Disallow unprivileged bpf by
     default") only changes kconfig default, used e.g. for "make oldconfig"
     when the config option is missing, but does not update our kernel
     configs used for build. Update also these to make sure unprivileged BPF
     is really disabled by default.
