We typically only create patches for the "upcoming release(s)".  Those
patches are what makes the "current release" the "next release".  The
amount of work it would take to create a version of every patch for
every past release is just far far too much.

This is one of the reasons we urge people to keep up with our release

Given that this particular patch is for the kernel itself, it escapes
the above clause with regard to Lustre verions but falls under a similar
clause in that we are only going to produce that patch for the
particular RHEL4 that is released with the "next release".  If you want
that patch for previous RHEL4 kernels you will have to try to port it
(if it even needs porting -- it might just apply cleanly) yourself,
maybe with help from people here in the community.
