Problem description

An updated kernel for 9.0 is available with a number of bug fixes. Supermount has been completely overhauled and should be solid on all systems. Other fixes include XFS with high memory, a netfilter fix, a fix for Sony VAIO DMI, i845 should now work with UDMA, and new support for VIA C3 is included. Prism24 has been updated so it now works properly on HP laptops and a new ACPI is included, although it is disabled by default for broader compatibility. This also fixes a security problem that allows non-root users to freeze the kernel, and a fix for a vulnerability in O_DIRECT handling that can create a limited information leak where any user on the system with write privilege to the file system from previously deleted files. This also allows users to create minor file system corruption (this can easily be repaired by fsck).
