Description Dag Wieers 2009-05-09 10:04:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Booting RHEL5 takes more time then necessary because nash's stabilized function has a bug. The fix is available from #193206 in rawhide, but it would be a small effort to port this back to RHEL 5.4.

The difference between booting without the current stabilized function makes a huge difference (more than 15 seconds) so if this is fixed it makes a big difference resuming from hibernate.

And it may look nice on the feature list too :-)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5.3 and earlier

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo stabilized / | time strace nash
Actual results:

Expected results:

Bug 193206 ?
Comment 2 Dag Wieers 2009-07-22 12:43:10 EDT
Can someone from Red Hat please investigate ?

I am sure we now missed the opportunity for RHEL 5.4... :-/
Comment 3 Denise Dumas 2009-07-22 12:54:04 EDT
This was never even proposed for 5.4, would be 5.5 at absolute best given the gazillion conflicting and higher priorities, and that's if a miracle happens. 
If this is a big issue for you, please escalate it through your support channel.

Will this bug be fixed for 5.5?
