Sorry I don't understand. Do you mean your Dom0 is 2.6.18? My patches
are against 3.10, the backporting is undergoing, however I don't think
they will be backported to 2.6.18. If you're running 2.6.18 Dom0,
presumably who backported XSA-39 will also backport those patches?

Jan maintains 2.6.18 tree with minimum required patches applied to fix
your problem (Frag bigger than frame), you might want to have a look at
the last two patches in tree.

Yes, my Dom0 is 2.6.18, it's based on RHEL 5. They're the ones you backported XSA-39, but they're not indicating when they will backport your fix, they've made the bug private.

I looked at Jan's tree and found those two patches you mentioned, I will create my own patch based on those two and rebuild the kernels.

Thank you!
