Bug Fix Advisory gfs-kmod bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0082-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Cluster-Storage (v. 5 server)

Details

Udated gfs-kmod packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The gfs-kmod packages contain kernel modules that provide the ability to mount
and use the Global File System (GFS).

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, registered kobjects could, under certain circumstances,
be freed while they were still in use. As a consequence, a kernel panic could
occur when processing the gfs_controld daemon. This update adds the kobject
release() method. Now, processing the gfs_controld daemon no longer causes a
kernel panic. (BZ#788694)

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


Solution

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

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