There's a kernel exploit in the wild [0]. I've run it on a couple of
nodes and it __does__ allow a non-root user root access. Has any one
tried it on a Hardware node or within a VE? Within a VE all I got was a
kernel oops and it was too low-level for me to decypher...

I tried it.

On a VE it gives a segfault

Segmentation fault

If you go and have a look at the host theres an oops:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 
00000000

The system becomes unstable after this.
