Bug Fix Advisory kernel bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0852-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-06-07
Last updated on: 2011-06-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.4.z server)

Details

Updated kernel packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

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

This update fixes the following bug:

* Under certain circumstances, a command could be left unprocessed when using
either the cciss or the hpsa driver. This was because the HP Smart Array
controller considered all commands to be completed when, in fact, some commands
were still left in the completion queue. This could cause the file system to
become read-only or panic and the whole system to become unstable. With this
update, an extra read operation has been added to both of the aforementioned
drivers, fixing this issue. (BZ#696502)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches
to correct this issue. The system must be rebooted for this update to take
effect.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
