An updated kpatch package that adds two enhancements is now available for RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.

The kpatch management tool provides a kernel patching infrastructure whichallows you to patch a running kernel without rebooting or restarting anyprocesses. The kpatch tool works at the function level for replacing oldfunctions with new functions using hot patch modules.This update adds the following enhancements:* The kpatch interface now lists both loaded and installed patch modules bymodprobe name, rather than by file name. This makes it more intuitive for usersto load and unload installed modules. (BZ#1148851)* It is now possible to re-enable patch modules which depend on theKPATCH_FORCE_UNSAFE script. This ensures that the “kpatch load” and “kpatchunload” commands always co-operate with the mentioned patch modules.(BZ#1148852)Users of kpatch are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds theseenhancements.
