Issues fixed in this patch (and their relevant symptoms, if applicable) include:
On ESX hosts with more than one CD-ROM device, rescanning storage (vmhba) causes the host to crash with a purple screen that displays CosPanic:4781: COS Error: Oops.
The root disk goes offline and the ESX service console becomes read-only during long cluster failovers on storage arrays. This issue applies to both Active/Active and Active/Passive storage arrays.
Includes a fix to better support Broadcom RemotePHY backplanes on Dell PowerEdge blade servers.
