Bug Fix Advisory kernel bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2008:0499-7
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2008-06-05
Last updated on: 2008-06-05
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.2.z server)

Details

Updated kernel packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

These updated packages fix the following bugs:

* the message buffer for the relay function is allocated against online
CPUs, not ones that will be hot-added in the future. If the buffer has
already been allocated, hot-adding a CPU, which the relay function works
on, will cause a panic, as the message buffer will not be available for
such a CPU. In these updated packages, hot-adding a CPU after the message
buffer has been allocated no longer causes a panic.

* after migrating a hypervisor guest, the MAC address table was not
updated, causing packet loss. This prevented network connections to the
guest. In these updated packages, after a migration, a gratuitous ARP
request is sent, causing the ARP caches to be refreshed, which minimizes
network downtime, and resolves this issue.

* the TAHI IPsec IPv6 Ready Logo test case failed on 64-bit PowerPC
systems, when using ESP with the encryption algorithm set to "3des-cbc",
and authentication set to "null".

* by default, Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on 64-bit PowerPC systems is
set for a 32-bit user-space. When compiling on such systems, 32-bit padding
was used, instead of the 64-bit padding required by 64-bit kernels. This
resulted in structure fields not being aligned, causing multicast socket
options to fail.

* the XFRM reverse feature for ICMPv6 did not work. In these updated
packages, this has been resolved, allowing the TAHI IPsec IPv6 Ready Logo
test case to pass successfully.

As well, from this release onwards, the changelog displays both Red Hat
Bugzilla numbers -- Z-Stream first, Y-Stream second -- for each changelog
entry.

Users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolve these issues.
