Switched to the tmb kernel and rebooted to Mate.  nvidia and virtualbox drivers rebult during boot.  Complaint about microcode being out of date but could find nothing in the journal.  BTAIM the desktop is running normally.  Passed several stress tests.  Networking OK.  Remote login to workstation on the LAN.  Graphical applications all run without problems, stellarium, VLC with TV input.  Bluetooth sound works perfectly.  No problems with virtualbox.  Running two vms at the same time.  Opened a password-protected file in LibreOffice.
The release version of celestia does not work but after performing a local build and installing that, it worked fine with this kernel.
Comment 3 Thomas Backlund 2018-05-26 01:24:39 CEST
Updated to 4.14.44 for more security fixes and to add fixes for bug 23060

So rpms to test:

description: |
  This kernel-tmb update is based on the upstream 4.14.44 and fixes atleast
  the following security issues:

  This update adds KPTI mitigation for Meltdown (CVE-2017-5754) on 32bit x86.

  The netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.15.7 mishandles the
  case of a rule blob that contains a jump but lacks a user-defined chain,
  which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
  dereference) by leveraging the CAP_NET_RAW or CAP_NET_ADMIN capability,
  related to arpt_do_table in net/ipv4/netfilter/arp_tables.c, ipt_do_table
  in net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.c, and ip6t_do_table in
  net/ipv6/netfilter/ip6_tables.c (CVE-2018-1065).

  A flaw was found in the Linux kernel implementation of 32 bit syscall
  interface for bridging allowing a privileged user to arbitrarily write
  to a limited range of kernel memory. This flaw can be exploited not only
  by a system's privileged user (a real "root" user), but also by an
  attacker who is a privileged user (a "root" user) in a user+network
  namespace (CVE-2018-1068).

  On x86, MOV SS and POP SS behave strangely if they encounter a data
  breakpoint. If this occurs in a KVM guest, KVM incorrectly thinks that
  a #DB instruction was caused by the undocumented ICEBP instruction. This
  results in #DB being delivered to the guest kernel with an incorrect RIP
  on the stack. On most guest kernels, this will allow a guest user to DoS
  the guest kernel or even to escalate privilege to that of the guest kernel

  The ext4_iget function in fs/ext4/inode.c in the Linux kernel through
  4.15.15 mishandles the case of a root directory with a zero i_links_count,
  which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (ext4_process_freed_data
  NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted ext4 image (CVE-2018-1092).

  The ext4_valid_block_bitmap function in fs/ext4/balloc.c in the Linux kernel
  through 4.15.15 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds
  read and system crash) via a crafted ext4 image because balloc.c and ialloc.c
  do not validate bitmap block numbers (CVE-2018-1093).

  The ext4_fill_super function in fs/ext4/super.c in the Linux kernel through
  4.15.15 does not always initialize the crc32c checksum driver, which allows
  attackers to cause a denial of service (ext4_xattr_inode_hash NULL pointer
  dereference and system crash) via a crafted ext4 image (CVE-2018-1094).

  The ext4_xattr_check_entries function in fs/ext4/xattr.c in the Linux kernel
  through 4.15.15 does not properly validate xattr sizes, which causes
  misinterpretation of a size as an error code, and consequently allows
  attackers to cause a denial of service (get_acl NULL pointer dereference and
  system crash) via a crafted ext4 image (CVE-2018-1095).

  By mmap()ing a FUSE-backed file onto a process's memory containing command
  line arguments (or environment strings), an attacker can cause utilities
  from psutils or procps (such as ps, w) or any other program which makes a
  read() call to the /proc/<pid>/cmdline (or /proc/<pid>/environ) files to
  block indefinitely (denial of service) or for some controlled time (as a
  synchronization primitive for other attacks) (CVE-2018-1120).

  A null pointer dereference in dccp_write_xmit() function in
  net/dccp/output.c in the Linux kernel before v4.16-rc7 allows a local
  user to cause a denial of service by a number of certain crafted
  system calls (CVE-2018-1130).

  Speculative Store Bypass (SSB) – also known as Spectre Variant 4.
  Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and speculative
  execution of memory reads before the addresses of all prior memory writes
  are known may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker
  with local user access via a side-channel analysis (CVE-2018-3639).
  NOTE! This fix only apply to Amd hardware so far as Intel CPUs need a
  fixed microcode update in order for the fix to get activated. At the time
  of this release we dont yet know when Intel will release new microcode.

  The Linux kernel does not properly handle debug exceptions delivered after a
  stack switch operation via mov SS or pop SS instructions. During the stack
  switch operation, the exceptions are deferred. As a result, a local user can
  cause the kernel to crash (CVE-2018-8897).

  A race condition vulnerability exists in the sound system, that can
  lead to a deadlock and denial of service condition (CVE-2018-1000004).

  A flaw was found in the Linux kernel where an out of memory (oom) killing
  of a process that has large spans of mlocked memory can result in
  deferencing a NULL pointer, leading to denial of service (CVE-2018-1000200).

  WireGuard has been updated to 0.0.20180519.

Installed all three flavours on this recently upgraded system.  Selexted tmb at boot.

System:    Host: markab Kernel: 4.14.44-tmb-desktop-2.mga6 x86_64
CPU:       Quad core Intel Core i7-5700HQ (-HT-MCP-) speed/max: 2518/3500 MHz
Machine:   Device: laptop System: GIGABYTE product: X5
Graphics:  Card-1: NVIDIA GM204M [GeForce GTX 965M]
           GLX Version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.59
Network:   Card-1: Qualcomm Atheros Killer E220x Gigabit Ethernet Controller
           driver: alx
           Card-2: Intel Wireless 7265 driver: iwlwifi
RAM:       15.60 GB

Running on ethernet just now.  Ran usual stress tests and other applications.
Pulled the plug on ethernet and wifi came up immediately.  NFS shares and local networking OK.  3K graphics working well with stellarium and vlc.  Closing and opening the laptod lid in the middle of this edit did no damage.  Had to fiddle to get bluetooth audio working.  Connection to TV soundbar failed.  Removed device and added it again and all was well.  It all looks good so far.
