    because of a vcc_recvmsg race condition (bsc#1218730).
  * CVE-2023-46838: Fixed an issue with Xen netback processing of zero-length
    transmit fragment (bsc#1218836).

    the USB by hotplug) code inside the brcm80211 component (bsc#1216702).
  * CVE-2023-51043: Fixed use-after-free during a race condition between a
    nonblocking atomic commit and a driver unload in
    drivers/gpu/drm/drm_atomic.c (bsc#1219120).
  * CVE-2024-0775: Fixed use-after-free in __ext4_remount in fs/ext4/super.c
    that could allow a local user to cause an information leak problem while
    freeing the old quota file names before a potential failure (bsc#1219053).
  * CVE-2024-0565: Fixed an out-of-bounds memory read flaw in
    receive_encrypted_standard in fs/smb/client/smb2ops.c (bsc#1218832).
