openSUSE 10 Security Update : xen (xen-2156)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes an issue on x86_64 in which a user-level application
can crash the guest OS when running Xen.

The AC (alignment check) flag in RFLAGS was not being cleared on entry
to the guest kernel, causing unwanted faults because the kernel runs
in ring 3 on Xen.

Solution :

Update the affected xen packages.
