[Bug 1328965] Re: 3.13.0-29 kernel includes backport of 3.14 16-bit app restrictions but not override method causing wine win9x to fail


In Ubuntu Wily, this seems to have regressed:

 michael@Hadrianus:~$ sudo -i
 root@Hadrianus:~# echo 1 > /proc/sys/abi/ldt16
 -bash: /proc/sys/abi/ldt16: No such file or directory

  3.13.0-29 kernel includes backport of 3.14 16-bit app restrictions but
  not override method causing wine win9x to fail

Bug description:
  Kernel 3.13.0-29 evidently contains a backport of the 3.14 kernel
  security workaround that disables 16-bit binaries from running.  This
  causes all wine Windows 95 and Windows 98 applications to fail.  The
  3.14 kernel also includes a feature to re-enable support for 16-bit
  binaries by providing the /proc/sys/abi/ldt16 interface.  This part of
  the kernel patch was evidently not backported, so this ability to
  override the 16-bit application prohibition is not available.

  For this reason, I cannot move forward to new kernel releases until
  this is fixed.
