RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Yep we also need 

But this is only a cosmetic issue. I don't think it deserves a respin for 7.1, especially in such late phase, but it should be mentioned in release notes though.

Comment 1 Peter Larsen 2015-01-19 22:38:26 UTC
Same issue seen on RHEL7

Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2015-03-11 11:40:43 UTC
Cross-filed case #01377172 on the Red Hat customer portal.

Comment 11 Lukáš Nykrýn 2015-05-11 08:48:53 UTC
Already fixed by rebase in 7.2

Comment 14 Robert Scheck 2015-07-29 09:37:42 UTC
The fix that was applied for RHBZ #1220298 unfortunately does not seem to
work, please cross-check if the non-working same fix is going to applied
for this RHBZ (for RHEL 7.2). I am also updating the case on the Red Hat
customer portal.
