Updated pciutils packages that fix one bug and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The pciutils packages provide various utilities for inspecting and manipulating devices connected to the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus.
Prior to this update, the pciutils directory daemon did not call closedir(). As a consequence, the directory could not be closed. This update modifies the underlying source code so that the directory is now closed after processing.

With this update, TPH (Transaction Processing Hints) and LTR (Latency Tolerance Reporting) reporting capabilities have been added to the pciutils package to support the PCI Express 3.0 standard.
All pciutils users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug and add this enhancement.
