Comment 2 Jakub Hrozek 2017-11-14 16:07:00 EST
This bug was open for almost two years and no customer cases were attached since.

The bug has also been fixed in RHEL-7.

Given the low interest and the fact that the bug is fixed in RHEL-7 and RHEL-6 being in Production Phase 3, I'm closing this bug as WONTFIX.

Please reopen this bugzilla if you are hit by this bug and would like to see it fixed in RHEL-6.
