This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.
Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux update release for currently deployed products.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a
conservative approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in
maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary
objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform
support and to resolve critical defects.
