However, Red Hat will further review this request for potential inclusion
in future major releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
We are currently investigating a solution and will implement a possible fix in Fedora. In case this turns out to be a viable and not too intrusive change we will reconsider to fix this in a future Red Hat Enterprise Linux update release.
