Description of problem:
RHSA-2004:549
(https://rhn.redhat.com/network/errata/details/package_list.pxt?eid=2499)
does not appear to include a built kernel RPM for SMP Intel EM64T arch
machines (no kernel-smp-2.4.21-20.0.1.EL.ia32e.rpm)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.21-20.0.1.EL

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to errata download page
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  Can download uniprocessor ia32e kernel and uni- and
smp x86-64 kernels, don't see smp ia32e built rpm

Expected Results:  A kernel built for this arch too.

Additional info:

This leaves a choice: run machines on 1 cpu only, or leave them
vulnerable to security holes this new kernel fixes.  Both options are
bad...

Closing. (IA32e is always SMP because of hyperthreading according to Dave 
Jones.) 
 
Maybe we could make a note of this somewhere, but please download the IA32E 
kernel and if it fails to detect your multiple CPUs reopen this bug or file a 
new one.
