Will this cause any downtime while installing? (Besides the reboot.)

I'm curious why I'm not seeing the CVE show in the kernel changelog.
kcarectl --uname reports:
yum list installed kernel* also reports:

rpm -q --changelog kernel.x86_64 | grep CVE-2014

does not show the CVE-2014-3153 as patched. I'm I going about this lookup wrong?

Seems like developers hadn't populated the changelog. Will talk to them.
