mga8, x64

CVE-2023-2253 points to a PoC at https://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2023/05/09/1 which involves setting up a registry of docker images (AFAICS) and modifying a configuration file to show the vulnerability while accessing the registry.  This requires a seasoned docker user and is so specific that simply running any old docker image will miss the mark.  Knock-on effects from the patch seem unlikely when there is no registry set up so a clean update is about all we can do.

Installed docker-registry and then updated it from testing.  No problems.
