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

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.
