Description Jeff Layton 2007-11-02 13:56:27 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #364351 +++

This patch was pushed upstream last June. The testcase fails on current RHEL4
and RHEL5. Patch fixes RHEL4 and I assume it'll fix RHEL5 as well. Description
of problem and testcase is in the patch description.

There is some speculation that this problem may be related to the problems seen
in  bug 327591. At the very least though, this is a reproducible problem in and
of itself and should probably be fixed.

Comment 5 Jeff Schroeder 2008-02-15 13:44:03 EST
Is there any status on when this will be in RHEL5? We've delayed RHEL5 upgrades
until this patch makes it into a blessed Redhat eratta kernel.
