Also, for anyone who is confused by all of this - I believe the original
patch here is sufficient to prevent all escalation vectors I am aware


The subsequent patches fixed one regression that only affected one
non-public application that we're aware of:

...and attempted to further harden, but this turned out to create
a different regression, so what's ultimately in 1.6.8 is the original
patch, plus a relatively minor patch.

In other words, if you already shipped the original patch, we believe
you likely don't need to do another update.
