We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 18.104.22.168 kernel.
I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between
22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, as it is small enough to do so.
Why does the patch make it to linux-kernel-announce and the nice
announcement, like this one, not? The short patch description is far
more useful, since if it's to something I don't use I don't need to
apply or examine it.

Obscure bug of 2004: BASH BUFFER OVERFLOW - if bash is being run by a
normal user and is setuid root, with the "vi" line edit mode selected,
and the character set is "big5," an off-by-one errors occurs during
wildcard (glob) expansion.
