In a package 'yum-utils' there is something called 'package-cleanup'.
It has an option to list all duplicates.

Actually it is better idea here to remove glibc-common-2.5.90-22
and run 'yup update' again.  The catch is that 'rpm -e ...'
possibly removed various files which belonged to both 2.5.90-21 and
2.5.90-22.  If you will do now 'rpm -V glibc-common' then chances
are that you will get a slew of 'missing' (unless by now you got an
update to even a newer version of glibc).

If 'rpm -V' does report missing files then you can use rpm with
'--force' option to install affected packages again and this will
fix the problem.  Removing newer duplicate is surely easier.
