FWIW, I'm having difficulty reconciling this proposed SRU with the following statement in the SRU policy (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates):

  Stable release updates will, in general, only be issued in order to fix high-impact bugs.

Have there been DSAs issued for vulnerabilities in hardy that would have been mitigated by this patch, or other evidence to support treating this as a "high-impact bug"?
