In addition to the issues covered above, we've also noticed a noticeable 
performance hit with the native 7.3 kernel (at least in our applications) 
on all the two dozen or so 2650s we're running.  Moving back to the 
2.4.9-34 kernel (latest errata 7.2 kernel) on all our new 7.3 installs 
solved the issues for us.  We have yet to determine what is causing these 
issues for us, but it is very noticeable at the higher utilization 
levels... our PE2550s (dual p3-1.26Ghz) running 7.2 (w/2.4.9-34) are much 
more efficient (and can support more load) than our PE2650s (dual xeon2 
2.2ghz) running 7.3 (w/2.4.19-5).
