7.102. libcgroup

Updated libcgroup packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libcgroup packages provide tools and libraries to control and monitor control groups.

Bug Fixes

Previously, the cgconfigparser utility wrote the whole multi-line value in a single write() function call, while the 'devices' kernel subsystem expected only one line per write(). Consequently, cgconfigparser did not properly set the multi-line variables. The underlying source code has been fixed, and cgconfigparser now parses all variables as intended.
Prior to this update, if '/etc/cgfconfig.conf' or a configuration file in the '/etc/cgconfig.d/' directory contained the cgroup name 'default' that was not enclosed in double quotation marks, backwards compatibility was broken and cgconfigparser failed to parse the file. With this update, 'default' without double quotation marks is again considered a valid cgroup name, and configuration files are now parsed correctly.
Users of libcgroup are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
