Official Statement from Red Hat (01/09/2008)

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the mysql packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, 4, 5, Red Hat Application Stack v1, and v2, as the versions shipped do not support table partitioning. The partitioning feature was introduced in development MySQL version 5.1.
