Well, keep in mind that Red Hat packages the cipe kernel module in the
"kernel" package (instead of the "cipe" package, which contains only
the ciped-cb program, plus scripts and docs).  Red Hat wants the
kernel they ship to be as stable as possible, so my guess is that they
tend not to upgrade pieces unless there's a good reason.

Red Hat's cipe kernel module contains the "too small packets" patch:


If any of you Red Hat customers want Red Hat to upgrade to 1.5, I
suggest you file an enhancement request in Bugzilla:


This is the best way to get Red Hat's attention.
