1.170.1. RHBA-2010:0815: bug fix update

An updated yaboot package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The yaboot package is a boot loader for Open Firmware based PowerPC systems. It can be used to boot IBM eServer System p machines.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Prior to this update, attempting to load a kernel with the CONFIG_RELOCATABLE option enabled failed with the following error:
/vmlinuz: Not a valid ELF image
This option changes the ELF file format to ET_DYN. With this update, the underlying code has been modified to allow this format, and relocatable kernel images can now be loaded as expected. ( BZ#647777)
All users of yaboot are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
