Bugzilla: 529597: CVE-2009-3620 kernel: r128 IOCTL NULL pointer dereferences when CCE state is uninitialised


The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls.
