A brief update on the current state of this BZ at the end of the day:
* suspected-missing backports are up for review upstream (links are posted above)
* ART Team have un-tagged the problem packages for 4.8/4.9 so they shouldn't be included in the upcoming z-stream release
* once we are able to test the new packages including the missing backports, we will validate if this is sufficient fix
Note: we verified that the proposed fix works in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2088196#c7. I will now work through the OCP backport process to ensure prerequisites are met in order to be able to merge the fix across the affected releases (noop BZ for 4.10/4.11 may be required to meet process requirements).
Adding pending sushy release (which is a prerequisite for raising OCP PR) for tracking, currently under review.
Current status: we have a tested fix merged upstream ( see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2088196#c7 ). We are waiting for the release of the library with the fix so that we can raise a downstream PR to include the fix in the Ironic image corresponding to this OCP version.
OCP 4.9 PR is now raised.
This has been fixed by https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/sushy/+/842461/. I have performed verification on 4.8 with Manuel by manually patching 4.8.40 container with this fix. The fix is 100% identical on 4.8 and 4.9 and it's an automatic cherry-pick hence this is sufficient information to successfully verify this fix (4.9) as well. Setting status to VERIFIED/OtherQA.
( forgot the link to 4.8 BZ with the confirmation that verification has been successful - it's here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2088196#c11)
