Name        : libhugetlbfs

Version     : 2.1.2
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://libhugetlbfs.ozlabs.org/
Summary     : A library which provides easy access to huge pages of memory
Description :
libhugetlbfs is a library which provides easy access to huge pages of memory.
It is a wrapper for the hugetlbfs file system. Applications can use huge pages
to fulfill malloc() requests without being recompiled by using LD_PRELOAD.
Alternatively, applications can be linked against libhugetlbfs without source
modifications to load BSS or BSS, data, and text segments into large pages.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

free_hugepage_region was unmapping libraries if they happened to show on a hpage
aligned address before the huge page region to be freed.  2.1.2 fixes this
problem.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update libhugetlbfs' at the command line.
