Description

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linuxoperating system.In addition, these updated packages fix the following bugs: PANIC: attached pid 10740 exited PANIC: handle_group_exit: 10740 leader 10721 ...will be displayed, and after which the trace would stop. With theseupdated packages, "strace -f" command no longer results in these errormessages, and strace terminates normally after tracing all threads.Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backportedpatches to correct these issues.
