| Digging up patches from 2011?  Why?

  Not digging up old patches, the issue was brought to our attention as RHEL-6 
is affected.

| What does asking for a CVE for such an old issue help with?

  Well, it helps in tracking the issue for later and letting wider audience 
know about it. As there could be other distributions that are affected by it.

Thank you.
