1.107.1. RHBA-2011:0825: numactl bug fix update

An updated numactl package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The numactl package adds a simple Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) policy support. It consists of a numactl program to run other programs with a specific NUMA policy and a libnuma to do allocations with NUMA policy in applications.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Under certain circumstances, having an environment of three numa nodes resulted in a memory corruption, which had a negative impact on performance. This problem has been fixed in this update so that the memory corruption does not occur anymore. (BZ#705309)
All users requiring numactl should upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
