------- Comment #1 from mark.williamson@xxxxxxxxxxxx  2007-06-26 18:04 -------
Recent versions of Xen are based on the 2.6.18 kernel, so should not be
vulnerable to this.  Users of older kernels should probably patch or upgrade in
order to safeguard against this.  Vendor kernels may already have these patches

I'm closing this bug, but feel free to push back if you feel anything needs to
be done.
