1.36.1. RHBA-2011:0088: bug fix update

An updated gfs-utils package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The gfs-utils package provides various user-space tools that are necessary to mount, create, maintain, and test Global File Systems (GFS).
This update fixes the following bugs:
* Prior to this update, an attempt to use the gfs_jadd utility on a symbolic link to a block device failed with the following error message:
GFS Filesystem /dev/vg0/gfs not found
With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to target this issue, and both symbolic links to block devices and block devices themselves can now be used interchangeably. ( BZ#555363)
* Due to an incorrect use of the log_err() function, running the "gfs_fsck -q" command may have caused the utility to display the confirmation message multiple times. With this update, the relevant function call has been corrected, so that the gfs_fsck utility no longer produces duplicate messages. ( BZ#567657)
All users of gfs-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
