Kernel 2.6.19.2 Released

Another release of -stable version of 2.6.19.x kernels. This time, it includes quite a lot of patches and bug fixes. Here's the announcement, taken from LWN:
We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.19.2 kernel.
There's a long list of fixes, not the least of which is the data
corruption fix from Linus and some security fixes:

d4ea7f9f: Bluetooth: Add packet size checks for CAPI messages (CVE-2006-6106)
eaca4fd8: handle ext3 directory corruption better (CVE-2006-6053)
fe89cf78: corrupted cramfs filesystems cause kernel oops (CVE-2006-5823)
8d312ae1: ext2: skip pages past number of blocks in ext2_find_entry (CVE-2006-6054)
54e25b04: VM: Fix nasty and subtle race in shared mmap'ed page writeback
e26353af: Fix incorrect user space access locking in mincore() (CVE-2006-4814)

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between
2.6.19.1 and 2.6.19.2, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.19.y git tree can be found at:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.19.y.git
and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:

thanks,
-chris
