This issue did not affect the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG as it has backported the fix that addresses this issue. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is now in Production 3 of the maintenance life-cycle, https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/, therefore the fix for this issue is not currently planned to be included in the future updates. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1386.html and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1465.html.
