Updated kernel packages that fix various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system.
Prior to this update, a kernel panic could occur when the Intel 82599 Virtual Function driver was used from the guest. As a result, 10 gigabit Ethernet(10GbE) network interface cards (NICs) could not be used correctly. This update modifies the code so that 10GbE NICs can be used when they are operated from the guest.
All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
