The sysctl functionality (sysctl.c) in Linux kernel before 188.8.131.52
allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel oops) and
possibly execute code by opening an interface file in
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/, waiting until the interface is unregistered,
then obtaining and modifying function pointers in memory that was used
for the ctl_table.
