After a successful installation of CentOS5 beta, I "successfully" crashed
the system twice already. This is caused by a known bug in the cifs
kernel module. The patch became available in January:
FC5 and FC6 are running the patched kernel but, unfortunately, RHEL5 will
not. Steve Dickson of RedHat says:
"I will not be able to get these in the initial RHEL5
release, since that is currently lock down... very tightly...
so I will try to get them in early in the 5.1 pool..."
I am wondering...if it is possible for the CentOS team to apply the patch
ahead of the upstream. Or I would have to wait for CentOS5.1? In that
case, I will need to compile the cifs module with the patched file.
