Several patches are available to fix kernel errata.

Please refer to http://www.openbsd.org/errata59.html and errata58.html for
details and patches.

Patches for 5.9 include:

 013: RELIABILITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 Splicing sockets in a loop could cause a kernel spin.

 014: RELIABILITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 Multiple processes exiting with a fd-passing control message on a shared
 socket could crash the system.

 015: RELIABILITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 ufs_readdir failed to limit size of memory allocation, leading to panics.

 016: SECURITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 The mmap extension __MAP_NOFAULT could overcommit resources and crash the
 system.

 017: RELIABILITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 A race occuring in the unlocked ARP input path can lead to a kernel NULL
 dereference.

 018: RELIABILITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 Tick counting overflows could cause a kernel crash.

 019: RELIABILITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 Invalid file descriptor use with kevent(2) could lead to a kernel crash.

 020: RELIABILITY FIX: July 14, 2016   All architectures
 Unchecked parameters and integer overflows in the amap allocation routines
 could cause malloc(9) to either not allocate enough memory, leading to memory
 corruption, or to trigger a "malloc: allocation too large" panic.
