wan/sdla.c in Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.11 and 2.4.x before 2.4.29
does not require the CAP_SYS_RAWIO privilege for an SDLA firmware
upgrade, with unknown impact and local attack vectors. NOTE: further
investigation suggests that this issue requires root privileges to
exploit, since it is protected by CAP_NET_ADMIN; thus it might not be
a vulnerability, although capabilities provide finer distinctions
between privilege levels.
