1.77.1. RHBA-2009:1539: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as errata RHBA-2009:1539
Updated iptables packages that fix a bug are now available.
The iptables utility controls the network packet filtering code in the Linux kernel.
These updated packages fix the following bug:
* the memory alignment of ipt_connlimit_data was incorrect on x86-based systems. This update adds an explicit aligned attribute to the ipt_connlimit_data struct to correct this. (BZ#529687)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated iptables packages, which resolve this issue.
