Rpm install on ppc fails due to missing symbol (__clear_user)

Rpm install on ppc fails due to missing symbol (__clean_user)
Settings ack for inclusion in 5.1.z stream.
Reassigning to Chris at his request.
Updating to urgent to get z-stream ack.
This needs to be fixed in the kernel rpm.
__clean_user needs to be added to the ppc kernel whitelist (as it is already on
the x86_64 & x86 whitelists). We're currently working around the issue in 5.1,
but it should be in 5.2 if at all possible.
The actual symbol is __clear_user (not __clean_user), I've updated the bug subject.
You can download this test kernel from http://people.redhat.com/dzickus/el5
verified __clear_user is being exported on ppc and I could install the
2.6.18-88.el5 kernel rpm without issues.
