Comment 1 IBM Bug Proxy 2008-09-24 22:50:27 EDT
I mirrored this request against the kernel component on the Red Hat side. If the
investigation points a different direction, please request that the RH BZ be
retargeted. Thanks, Emily

Putting in NEEDINFO pending the 'root cause analysis still in progress.'
Comment 3 IBM Bug Proxy 2009-01-28 14:01:03 EST
Aneesh is working on this now.
Comment 4 IBM Bug Proxy 2009-03-02 12:21:04 EST
This issue is still under investigation, we will revisit this when there are some results from investigation and determine at that point if feature, bug, or technical note/white paper is appropriate response.

------- Comment From sglass@us.ibm.com 2009-03-25 12:29 EDT-------
This feature has been deferred from RHEL 6.  We do not know what needs to be done yet so we will relook at this for RHEL 6.1
Comment 6 John Jarvis 2009-03-25 12:37:20 EDT
Closing as DEFERRED based on comment 5
