linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-azure, linux-azure-4.15,
linux-dell300x, linux-gcp, linux-gcp-4.15, linux-hwe, linux-kvm,
linux-oracle, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon regression
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro)

Summary:

The system could show undesired warning messages in certain conditions.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-4.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-dell300x: Linux kernel for Dell 300x platforms
- linux-gcp-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
- linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems
- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

USN-6081-1, USN-6084-1, USN-6092-1 and USN-6095-1 fixed vulnerabilities in
the Linux kernel. Unfortunately, that update introduced a spurious warning
in the IPv6 subsystem. This update removes the undesired warning message.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.

ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed.
Unless you manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages
(e.g. linux-generic, linux-generic-lts-RELEASE, linux-virtual,
linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically perform
this as well.
