Synopsis: ELBA-2015-3016 can now be patched using Ksplice

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle kernel update, ELBA-2015-3016.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack on EL 5 install these

On systems that have "autoinstall = yes" in /etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf,
these updates will be installed automatically and you do not need to
take any action.

Alternatively, you can install these updates by running:

# /usr/sbin/uptrack-upgrade -y


* Cluster deadlock during journal commit in OCFS2 filesystem.

Under certain circumstances, incorrect lock ordering could cause a
deadlock if one thread handles a buffer write at the same time as the
journal commit thread attempts to flush the buffer. If this happens,
the whole cluster will hang.


Ksplice support is available at ksplice-support_ww at oracle.com.
