1.25.1. RHBA-2010:0684: bug fix update

Updated dump packages that fix various bugs are now available.
The dump package contains both dump and restore commands. The dump command examines files in a file system, determines which ones need to be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape, or other storage medium. The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can restore a full backup of a file system. Subsequent incremental backups can then be layered on top of the full backup. Single files and directory subtrees may also be restored from full or partial backups.
These updated dump packages fix the following bugs:
* errors in calculating offsets from which to continue file restoration meant that, if a file was split across multiple tapes during a backup, the split file was corrupted and presented with a different md5sum hash to the original when restoration was attempted. This update corrects the offset calculations and allows restoration of split files as expected. ( BZ#563532)
* previously, the restore command attempted to restore extended attributes of a file after the immutable flag had been set. As a result, the attributes were not fully restored, and a warning message was displayed on standard error (STDERR). With this update, these operations are now performed in the correct order, and the restore command no longer fails to set the extended attributes. ( BZ#494303)
All dump users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
