This issue did not affect the Linux kernels as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, and 5 as they did not include support for the GHASH message digest algorithm. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and MRG via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0350.html, and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0010.html.
