* kernel: Spectre v2 SMT mitigations problem (CVE-2023-1998)

* kernel: NULL pointer dereference in __nvmet_req_complete (CVE-2023-6536)

* kernel: NULL pointer dereference in nvmet_tcp_execute_request (CVE-2023-6535)

* kernel: NULL pointer dereference in nvmet_tcp_build_iovec (CVE-2023-6356)

* kernel: mlxsw: spectrum_acl_tcam: Fix stack corruption (CVE-2024-26586)

* kernel: net:emac/emac-mac: Fix a use after free in emac_mac_tx_buf_send (CVE-2021-47013)

* kernel: sched/membarrier: reduce the ability to hammer on sys_membarrier (CVE-2024-26602)

* kernel: net: bridge: data races indata-races in br_handle_frame_finish() (CVE-2023-52578)

* CVE-2024-25743 hw: amd: Instruction raise #VC exception at exit (AMD- SN-3008,CVE-2024-25742,CVE-2024-25743)

* kernel: netfilter: nf_tables: disallow anonymous set with timeout flag (CVE-2024-26642)

Bug Fix(es):

* md raid5 deadlock during sync check (JIRA:RHEL-27235)

* NULL pointer dereference occurs in x2apic_dead_cpu() due to missing backport from upstream commit 7a22e03b0c02 (JIRA:RHEL-32733)

* [RHEL8.8][ltp] case vma05 failed on x86_64 (JIRA:RHEL-33448)

* XFS: thaw operation hungs if caches are dropped while FS is frozen (JIRA:RHEL-34523)

* Temporary values in FIPS integrity test should be zeroized (JIRA:RHEL-36693)
