RHEL 3 U3 breaks GFS

Description of problem:
There are a few problems with the GFS package (binary and src) and
RHEL U3. GFS includes kernel modules, and the latest release "7.1"
has the kernel source packages explicitly tied to the 15.0.4 Kernel.
So, if you're upgrade your kernel to U3-
**IT WILL BREAK GFS**.
Also, the src RPM will fail to build for basically the same
reason and you will not be able to re-install the binary RPM. In
Hacking around this problem I also found another: the src RPM fails to
build on the "athlon" arch. For some reason this arch shows up via
uname as "i386 athlon".
Anyway, I fixed the above problems (the first as somewhat of
kludge) and rebuild the src RPM. It now builds and installs on RHEL
U3 on the athlon arch. Please see attached package if you want the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update to RHEL 3 U3 kernel
2.Install or rebuild GFS package
Actual Results: The install / Build Fails
Expected Results: Package should install

fixed GFS spec
Mainly I hacked the kernel source patching code, it's not very pretty but it
works. I didn't have any failed hunks patching the U3 "20" kernel source
eventhough the patches are for 15.0.4
There are new GFS RPMs generated to work with U3. These should be up
on RHN. I will check today to make sure they are.
RPMs were released on RHN yesterday.
