    - linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V7) systems
    - linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
    - linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems

    - linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that the network block device (nbd) implementation in the
    Linux kernel did not properly check for error conditions in some
    situations. An attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service
    (system crash). (CVE-2019-16089)
    
    It was discovered that the btrfs file system implementation in the Linux
    kernel did not properly validate file system metadata in some situations.
    An attacker could use this to construct a malicious btrfs image that, when
    mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-19036,
    CVE-2019-19318, CVE-2019-19813, CVE-2019-19816)
    
    It was discovered that the btrfs implementation in the Linux kernel did not
    properly detect that a block was marked dirty in some situations. An
    attacker could use this to specially craft a file system image that, when
    unmounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-19377)
    
    It was discovered that the kernel->user space relay implementation in the
    Linux kernel did not properly check return values in some situations. A
    local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
    crash). (CVE-2019-19462)
    
    Matthew Sheets discovered that the SELinux network label handling
    implementation in the Linux kernel could be coerced into de-referencing a
    NULL pointer. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
    (system crash). (CVE-2020-10711)
    
    It was discovered that the SCSI generic (sg) driver in the Linux kernel did
    not properly handle certain error conditions correctly. A local privileged
    attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
    (CVE-2020-12770)
    
    It was discovered that the USB Gadget device driver in the Linux kernel did
    not validate arguments passed from configfs in some situations. A local
    attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
    crash) or possibly expose sensitive information. (CVE-2020-13143)
    
    It was discovered that the efi subsystem in the Linux kernel did not handle
    memory allocation failures during early boot in some situations. A local
    attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
    crash). (CVE-2019-12380)
    
    It was discovered that the btrfs file system in the Linux kernel in some
    error conditions could report register information to the dmesg buffer. A
    local attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive information.
    (CVE-2019-19039)

    After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
    all the necessary changes.
    
    ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
    been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
    reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed.
    Unless you manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages
    (e.g. linux-generic, linux-generic-lts-RELEASE, linux-virtual,
    linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically perform
    this as well.
