    It means that a rarely used network protocol has a problem that could potentially be used. I don't even have that module built. If you do have it, and you don't use infiniband, then you can safely blacklist rds.ko and be safe from any future exploit until your kernel gets upgraded >5.0.8, or the patch gets backported to your particular preferred kernel version. If you don't know what infiniband is, then you don't need it.
