Boy, that's an annoying bug... it's somewhere in the guts of Red Hat's
kernel + nptl patches + O_DIRECT + rpm. I think that Red Hat will eventually
have a new version of RPM that works with this kernel. In the meantime,
a) rebuild with patch 1300 in place, if you don't care about using O_DIRECT
b) set up an alias for "rpm" to prefix it with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5

No docs... best documentation is probably the spec file itself. Which xfs
patches, and which Red Hat kernel packages, do you want to combine?
