Updated xfsdump packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 6.

The xfsdump packages provide several utilities for managing XFS file systems,including xfsrestore and xfsdump.This update fixes the following bugs:* Previously, the xfsrestore command executed on a dumped XFS filesystem did notproperly restore file capabilities. This bug has been fixed and filecapabilities are now correctly restored by xfsrestore. (#905585)* Previously, the xfsdump package did not create the /var/lib/xfsdump/inventory/directory during installation. Consequently, the directory was created duringrun time, and therefore it was not owned by the package. With this update,/var/lib/xfsdump/inventory/ is created when the package is installed. Now,xfsdump owns /var/lib/xfsdump/inventory/ as expected. (#1055655)Users of xfsdump are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fixthese bugs.
