establish end-to-end integrity for QEMU guests via Trusted Computing.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-04-06 17:04:46 EDT
Since RHEL 6.1 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Red Hat, this needs to be deferred with the vTPM items to RHEL 6.3.  Please defer on your side too.

Package was verified for the vTPM even though it was present in the previous release.  Moving to verified on our side.
