This looks like something for which you would be best off going through support,
as Bugzilla is not an official support channel, has no response guarantees, and
may not route your issue to the correct area to assist you. In order to file a
support issue, please either contact Red Hat's Technical Support line at
888-GO-REDHAT or file a web ticket at http://www.redhat.com/apps/support/.
Using the official support channels above will guarantee that your issue is
handled appropriately and routed to the individual or group which can best
assist you with this issue and will also allow Red Hat to track the issue,

dropped from a future update or major release.
Please attach the complete console output (capturing it via a serial
line if necessary). We need to see the stack trace, the EIP value,
and whether there were any loaded modules that tainted the kernel.
