Description of problem:
The kernel is carrying its own copy of zlib, isn't it?

If yes, this is not allowed for reasons noted here:

How reproducible:
$ rpm -ql kernel | grep zlib
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2009-06-08 16:29:47 EDT
The kernel cannot link against shared libraries; it would be an exception to this policy.
