Please be advised, that Bugzilla is not a support tool. It is an
Engineering and Community tool. So although all changes to Enterprise
Linux go through Bugzilla and Red Hat considers issues directly entered
into Bugzilla valuable feedback, there is no SLA around it.

If this is a production issue, please report it to your Red Hat Support contact.

Thank you.
