|Description||The ext4_fill_super function in fs/ext4/super.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.27 before 188.8.131.52 and 2.6.28 before 184.108.40.206 does not validate the superblock configuration, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by attempting to mount a crafted ext4 filesystem.|

The information below is based on the following data on fixed versions.
[etch] - linux-2.6 <not-affected> (ext4 not yet present)
Since the feature is experimental until 2.6.27, I don't think we need to fix this
