Details

An updated hwdata package that fixes one bug and adds various enhancements is
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The hwdata package contains tools for accessing and displaying hardware
identification and configuration data.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, certain information about the Red Hat Virtio Small Computer System
Interface (SCSI) device was missing from the pci.ids database. Consequently,
when using the lspci utility, the device name was not shown correctly and the
numeric device ID was shown instead. With this update, the pci.ids database has
been modified to provide correct information as expected. (BZ#989142)

In addition, this update adds the following enhancements:

* The PCI ID numbers have been updated for the Beta and the Final compose lists.
(BZ#982659)

* With this update, the pci.ids database has been updated with information about
AMD FirePro graphic cards. (BZ#739838)

* With this update, the pci.ids database has been updated with information about
the Cisco VIC SR-IOV Virtual Function with the usNIC capability. (BZ#948121)

All users of hwdata are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug and adds these enhancements.
