OpenBSD Errata: October 29th, 2020 (icmp6)

Theo Buehler-5
Errata patches for the kernel have been released for OpenBSD 6.7 and 6.8.

When generating the ICMP6 response to an IPv6 packet, the kernel could
use mbuf memory after freeing it.

Binary updates for the amd64, i386, and arm64 platforms are available via
the syspatch utility. Source code patches can be found on the respective
errata page:

  https://www.openbsd.org/errata67.html
  https://www.openbsd.org/errata68.html

As these affect the kernel, a reboot will be needed after patching.
