4.40. gfs-kmod

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).

Bug Fix

BZ#788694
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.
All users of gfs-kmod are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
