    - ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1. Summary:
    
    Updated kernel packages are now available as part of ongoing support
    and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4.  This is the
    first regular update.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, noarch, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, x86_64
    
    3. Problem description:
    
    The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.
    
    This is the first regular kernel update to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
    
    A flaw affecting the auditing code was discovered.  On Itanium
    architectures a local user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service
    (crash).  This issue is rated as having important security impact
    (CAN-2005-0136). 
    
    A flaw was discovered in the servicing of a raw device ioctl.  A local user
    who has access to raw devices could use this flaw to write to kernel memory
    and cause a denial of service or potentially gain privileges.  This issue
    is rated as having moderate security impact (CAN-2005-1264). 
    
    New features introduced by this update include:
    - - Fixed TCP BIC congestion handling.
    - - Diskdump support for more controllers (megaraid, SATA)
    - - Device mapper multipath support
    - - AMD64 dual core support.
    - - Intel ICH7 hardware support.
    
    There were many bug fixes in various parts of the kernel.  The ongoing
    effort to resolve these problems has resulted in a marked improvement
    in the reliability and scalability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
    
    The following device drivers have been upgraded to new versions:
     ata_piix -------- 1.03
     bonding --------- 2.6.1
     e1000 ----------- 5.6.10.1-k2-NAPI
     e100 ------------ 3.3.6-k2-NAPI
     ibmveth --------- 1.03
     libata ---------- 1.02 to 1.10
     lpfc ------------ 0:8.0.16 to 0:8.0.16.6_x2
     megaraid_mbox --- 2.20.4.0 to 2.20.4.5
     megaraid_mm ----- 2.20.2.0-rh1 to 2.20.2.5
     sata_nv --------- 0.03 to 0.6
     sata_promise ---- 1.00 to 1.01
     sata_sil -------- 0.8
     sata_sis -------- 0.5
     sata_svw -------- 1.05
     sata_sx4 -------- 0.7
     sata_via -------- 1.0
     sata_vsc -------- 1.0
     tg3 ------------- 3.22-rh
     ipw2100 --------- 1.0.3
     ipw2200 --------- 1.0.0
    
    All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users are advised to upgrade their
    kernels to the packages associated with their machine architectures
    and configurations as listed in this erratum.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
    errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
    Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
    Update Agent, use the following command:
    
        up2date
    
    For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
    following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
    guide specific to your system:
