Details

Updated binutils packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The binutils packages are a collection of programming tools for the manipulation
of object code in various object file formats.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Due to instability in calculating the program header size, the GNU linker
could terminate unexpectedly with the "looping in map_segments" error message.
With this update, the linker has been modified to properly handle changes in the
size of the segment map, which prevents the instability and the linker no longer
crashes in this scenario. (BZ#818708)

All users of binutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.
