Hi Rishikesh/Sergei,

Any fix available for the same ?? ;-)
          
Please try the following patch...
        
I'm sorry, that should handle archictures without unshare (?) but not
older kernels.

The following patch adds a check for a 2.6.16 kernel, which it looks
like is where unshare was added.

BTW, I may be off, but I think the comments for
lib/tst_kvercmp.c:tst_kvercmp() are wrong, aren't they?  Doesn't it
return a positive int if arg < current kernel version, and positive int
if arg > current kernel version?
      
Yep i verified it , it is correct

arg > kernel version = it is returning negative .
arg < kernel version = it is returning positive.

Where arg = 2.6.17 , current kernel versions are = 2.6.15 & 
2.6.18.8-el5
    

Yup it's clear to me in light of morning.  You see why i couldn't get
the right patch attached last night  :)

Here is the patch I finally managed to sling over to Rishi, who has
confirmed it tests correctly on both old and new kernels.

Please apply,

thanks,
