review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red

Sorry for typo.
Original bug is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=573921.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an IPVS virtual service, something along these lines:
ipvsadm -A -t this.host.ip:80
ipvsadm -a -t this.host.ip:80 -r other.host.ip:80 -m
(and set up the HTTP server on other.host.ip).
2. from different host run "telnet this.host.ip 80"
3. run /sbin/ipvsadm -L
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
