The Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and Red Hat
Enterprise MRG did not include support for eCryptfs, and therefore are not
affected by this issue. A future update in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 may
address this flaw. This was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0723.html.
