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.

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.
