The ldm_frag_add function in fs/partitions/ldm.c in the Linux kernel
before 184.108.40.206 does not properly handle memory allocation for
non-initial fragments, which might allow local users to conduct buffer
overflow attacks, and gain privileges or obtain sensitive information,
via a crafted LDM partition table. NOTE: this vulnerability exists
because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-1017.
