SuSE: New Linux kernel packages fix remote denial of service

This update fixes a remote denial of service bug (memory exhaustion) in the Apache 2 HTTP server, that could be triggered by remote attackers using multiple overlapping Request Ranges. It also fixes an issue in mod_dav, where the mod_cache and mod_dav modules in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (process crash) via a request that lacks a path. Updated packages are available from download.opensuse.org.
