BIND patches versions for older Fedoras

I think we've all heard about the major vulnerability in DNS lately.  My 
question is, how far back will the patched BIND versions go in Fedora? 
My problem is this:  I have 2 systems that are DNS servers than cannot 
be upgraded past FC6 because of the problem with mkinitrd that is 
keeping my Qlogic FC driver from loading on boot.  Therefore, I'm stuck 
until that gets resolved.  I can definitely build the patched version 
from source if I must, but wanted to see if possibly someone is going to 
build one for FC6 and make it available on one of the repos.

Also, what is the correct patched version RPM name so I know I'm getting 
the right one if I need to build it myself?
