Description of problem: After update via yum to kernel running ldconfig -v gives the message "ldconfig: /etc/ld.so.conf.d/kernel- duplicate hwcap 0 nosegneg"

How reproducible: Install kernel via yum.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a terminal
2. Execute "ldconfig -v | grep duplicate"

Actual results: ldconfig: /etc/ld.so.conf.d/kernel- duplicate hwcap 0 nosegneg

Expected results: No such message.

in /etc/ld.so.conf/kernel-


# This directive teaches ldconfig to search in nosegneg subdirectories
# and cache the DSOs there with extra bit 0 set in their hwcap match
# fields.  In Xen guest kernels, the vDSO tells the dynamic linker to
# search in nosegneg subdirectories and to match this extra hwcap bit
# in the ld.so.cache file.
hwcap 0 nosegneg


Now, when you have more then one kernel installed you also have more of these entries in /etc/ld.so.conf which causes the message "duplicate hwcap 0 nosegneg".

I don't know if it is harmful.

This is normal.
