Description RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-10-31 08:19:07 EDT
This bug has been copied from bug #291591 and has been proposed
to be backported to 4.5 z-stream (EUS).
Comment 2 Jeff Layton 2007-11-01 10:56:06 EDT
I expect that this patch won't need any backporting for Z stream. Let me know if
it doesn't apply cleanly.

patch -- don't apply CTO getattr to symlink

This patch should apply cleanly to -55.0.13 (with just a little offset).
Comment 6 Don Howard 2007-11-20 14:09:55 EST
A patch for this issue has been included in build 2.6.9-55.0.14.
