This looks like a duplicate of BZ 104633.
Try Doug's test RPMs referenced in that bug. If that solves the
problem, please mark this as a dup.
Switching state to NEEDINFO. If this problem still exists with
current kernels, then we need to know that. Otherwise, the assumption
will be that the 15.EL kernels have solved this issue for you.
This has been NEEDINFO for 7 months. If this problem still occurs with
RHEL 4 U4, please re-open.
