Description of problem:
Xinetd equip load average-based resource limitation functionality.
But it is disabled by default.
Please add --with-loadavg configure option to the spec.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/sbin/xinetd -version
Actual Results: xinetd Version 2.3.10 libwrap
Expected Results: xinetd Version 2.3.10 libwrap loadavg
Disabling the functionality in configuration file is easy.
If you don't specify "max_load" attribute, the functionality is disabled.
Therefore, in the view of compatibility,
enabling the functionality is no problem.
I change status from RFE to BUG.
Because the man page of xinetd.conf refers the "max_load" capability without
(configure-)limitation, but RedHat's xinetd doesn't support it.
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
