Linux kernel bug

In regards to the following article posted on Ars Technia about the kernel bug (http://arstechnica.com/security/2016/01/linux-bug-imperils-tens-of-millions-of-pcs-servers-and-android-phones/),
has this been addressed in any way? I couldn’t find anything in the news or security forums.
Thanks for any info
Brendan
