Description of problem:
hwloc 1.4 is now available upstream. What are the plans to update hwloc in RHEL6?
I maintain hwloc package for Fedora and I can can make new package "hwloc14" available for EPEL6 if there are no plans to update hwloc in RHEL6.
I can request an update for 6.4 and see if it gets approved. I won't know for a few months though.
it sounds like a good plan. Please let us know the status once 6.4 is finalized.
I will update this bz when I get new info.
I have updated to v1.5 and will push that out to 6.4 barring any unforseen issues.

hwloc 1.5.1 was released on October 17th:
I am curious if we want to package that instead or stick with 1.5?
The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the release
v1.5.1 is a bug fix release which addresses all known bugs in the
* Fix block OS device detection on Linux kernel 3.3 and later.
Thanks to Guy Streeter for reporting the problem and testing the fix.
* Fix the cpuid code in the x86 backend (for FreeBSD). Thanks to
Sebastian Kuzminsky for reporting problems and testing patches.
* Fix 64bit detection on FreeBSD.
* Fix some corner cases in the management of the thissystem flag with
respect to topology flags and environment variables.
* Fix some corner cases in command-line parsing checks in hwloc-distrib
* Make sure we do not miss some block OS devices on old Linux kernels
when a single PCI device has multiple IDE hosts/devices behind it.
* Do not disable I/O devices or instruction caches in hwloc-assembler output.
I definitely agree that it makes sense to go for 1.5.1
I have updated master branch of hwloc for Fedora in case that anybody would like to test 1.5.1. My local tests all went through.
Automated and manual testing succeeded
