Updated busybox packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
BusyBox is a binary that combines a large number of common system utilities into a single executable. BusyBox provides replacements for most GNU file utilities, shell utilities, and other command-line tools.

Bug Fix

BZ#981178
Prior to this update, the "mknod" command was unable to create device nodes with a major or minor number larger than 255. Consequently, the kdump utility failed to handle such a device. The underlying source code has been modified, and it is now possible to use the "mknod" command to create device nodes with a major or minor number larger than 255.
Users of busybox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
