An updated kabi-whitelists package that adds various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The kabi-whitelists package contains reference files documenting interfaces provided by the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 kernel that are considered to be stable by Red Hat engineering, and safe for longer term use by third-party loadable device drivers, as well as for other purposes.
Multiple symbols have been added to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 kernel application binary interface (ABI) whitelists.
Multiple symbols for Hitachi loadable device drivers have been added to the kernel ABI whitelists.
This update modifies the structure of the kabi-whitelists package: whitelists are now ordered according to various Red Hat Enterprise Linux releases, and a symbolic link that points to the latest release has been added.
The "__dec_zone_page_state" and "dec_zone_page_state" symbols have been added to the kernel ABI whitelists.
The "blk_queue_rq_timed_out", "fc_attach_transport", "fc_release_transport", "fc_remote_port_add", "fc_remote_port_delete", "fc_remote_port_rolechg", "fc_remove_host", and "touch_nmi_watchdog" symbols have been added to the kernel ABI whitelists.
Multiple symbols for Oracle Cloud File System have been added to the kernel ABI whitelists.
The "get_fs_type" and "vscnprintf" have been added to the kernel ABI whitelists.
All users of kabi-whitelists are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds these enhancements.
