    I can confirm that kernel versions 5.13.0-28-generic and 5.11.0-40-generic for Ubuntu 20.04 are affected.

    Yes, this has been patched and pushed (as of 2022-03-08) for 21.10 (Impish).

    After I did a sudo apt update, I did a sudo apt list –upgradable to see if the kernel was updated. It was.

    The important line is here: linux-generic/impish-updates amd64

    Googling for the answer didn’t come up with any clear answers. So I went to the ubuntu git repository at:


    (this URL is specific to impish)

    You can then see that this version contains the patch from Max Kellerman: https://git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel/ubuntu/+source/linux/+git/impish/commit/?id=181cbcef9f8c158189a3b1094c532b6686f14acf

    The following commit tags it: https://git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel/ubuntu/+source/linux/+git/impish/commit/?id=b07bbb7a296b9be80e48973bba8b03fb1101547f

    linux (5.13.0-35.40) impish; urgency=medium
