Bugzilla:
1671869: CVE-2016-10741 kernel: race condition between direct and memory-mapped I/O in fs/xfs/xfs_aops.c
It was found that the Linux kernel can hit a BUG_ON() statement in the __xfs_get_blocks() in the fs/xfs/xfs_aops.c because of a race condition between direct and memory-mapped I/O associated with a hole in a file that is handled with BUG_ON() instead of an I/O failure. This allows a local unprivileged attacker to cause a system crash and a denial of service.
