Bug Fixes

The madvise(2) manual page did not contain the "MADV_DODUMP" and "MADV_DONTDUMP" arguments. This update adds a description of these arguments to the madvise(2) manual page.
BZ#833868
Previously, the manual page for the dig utility contained upstream-specific options for an Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) library. Consequently, these options did not function as expected and users were incapable of disabling IDN support in dig following the steps from the manual page. The dig(1) manual page has been modified to include the options of the IDN library used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and users can now successfully disable IDN support in dig following the steps from the manual page.
BZ#978981
Previously, no manual page for the getent utility was available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. This update adds the missing getent(1) manual page and the documentation of the utility is now complete.
