I've gone through the results.

There are the two bugs in device/net_io.c which I haven't fixed and can
be concerning, since they would imply injecting a bogus BPF filter could
make the kernel crash.  I guess a thorough look at the whole code would
be good to catch all such kinds of issues.

There is also the assert(thread->wait_status = -1); which look like they
could have been intentional, I don't know without looking closer at the
source code.

1167452 is probably worth checking.

The FPU fixups are definitely to be cherry-picked by the debian package.
