1.137.1. RHBA-2011:0093: bug fix update

Updated sq3_utils packages that resolve an issue are now available.
The sg3_utils package contains a collection of tools for SCSI devices that use the Linux SCSI generic (sg) interface. It includes utilities for database copying based on 'dd' syntax and semantics (the sg_dd, sgp_dd and sgm_dd commands), INQUIRY data checking and associated pages (sg_inq), mode and log page checking (sg_modes and sg_logs), disk spinning (sg_start) and self-tests (sg_senddiag), as well as other utilities. It also contains the script.
These updated sq3_utils packages fix the following bug:
* If no device existed with a Logical Unit Number (LUN) of "0", then the shell script failed to detect any other devices as well.
In a separate issue, the shell script did not always detect all LUNs due to a timing issue while checking the device's online status.
With this update, the script detects all devices even if there is no device with LUN of "0", and the "rescan" command successfully receives the device's online status. ( BZ#529654)
All users of sq3_utils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
