patches.

Description :

security-related TPM data. A local, unprivileged user could read the
results of a previous TPM command. (CVE-2011-1162)

Dan Rosenberg reported an error in the old ABI compatibility layer of
ARM kernels. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a
denial of service or gain root privileges. (CVE-2011-1759)

has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
