Really? I thought that was fixed a long time ago. What kernel was
RHEL5 originally based on?

And note that no RHEL5 user is going to be using a .36 kernel on their
system, that's a completely unsupported and unadvised situation. Heck,
I'd be amazed if a .34 kernel.org kernel boots on the thing, does it?

I'm not, I honestly thought that we had resolved these issues.

So, which version of Centos matches up with RHEL5 so I can go download
it and see if I can resolve this? We might just be able to reduce the
ammount of code we remove here and keep the Kconfig option around, if
that old userspace is expecting a portion of the symlinks to still be
present.

thanks,

greg k-h
