Error description

  • Running multiple audited builds in IBM Rational ClearCase (mvfs)
    on Oracle Solaris 11 may cause
    the global zone to crash. The crash dump indicates a memory
    allocation error.
    
    Analysis of the crash dumps has shown the issue to be caused by
    MVFS not initializing the uio structures,
    causing ui_extflag member of uio_t to be uninitialized.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    None.
