How much of a threat is the Linux Keyring bug to Android users?

There have been reports that millions of current Android phones are at risk because of this. How serious of a security threat is this, and what can be done to minimize any risks?
The vulnerability can be exploited in giving an malicious app elevated permeations to effect the kernel. So far there haven't been any exploits, but potentially this is a big threat. From what I've read a patch should be released in March to address the bug.
