Description

LSAC(v2)
The kexec fastboot mechanism allows booting a Linux kernel from the context of an already running kernel. The kexec-tools package provides the /sbin/kexec binary and ancillary utilities that form the user-space component of the kernel's kexec feature. These updated kexec-tools packages include numerous bug fixes and one enhancement. Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users are directed to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9 Technical Notes for information on the most significant of these changes: https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/5.9_Technical_Notes/kexec-tools.html#RHBA-2013-0012 All users of kexec-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add this enhancement.
