two new kernel errata

Ted Unangst-6
Patches are now available for 5.5 and 5.6 which fix two kernel errata.

5.5 errata 16 and 5.6 errata 10:
Several bugs were fixed that allowed a crash from remote when an active
pipex session exists.

5.5 errata 17 and 5.6 errata 11:
An incorrect memcpy call would result in corrupted MAC addresses when
using PPPOE.

Users who don't use don't use PPPOE or PIPEX are not affected, but can
still apply the patches.
