net-snmp ssCpuRawIdle counter gets stuck at 2^32-1

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait until UCD-SNMP-MIB::ssCpuRawIdle.0 = Counter32: 4294967295
Counter gets stuck at 4294967295
Counter should wrap over to zero
This is handled by net-snmp's offical patch located at
I checked the source RPM tarball and patches for the version listed and vmstat.c
shows the pre-patched version at net-snmp's sourceforge link above.
The counter sticking throws off our monitoring and instrumentation for the
servers. A reboot is the only current fix.
