Scientific Linux Security Update : openafs on SL41-45 i386/x86_64

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

In pthread-aware fileservers, the 'host_glock' pthread lock, accessed
via the H_LOCK and H_UNLOCK macros, is used to provide safe access to
host structures. This lock is required to be held when updating
information pertaining to a host. The RPC handler for the
GiveUpAllCallBacks RPC did not hold this lock while performing its
work.

This errata is already in SL 4.6. So it only applies to SL 40-45
