Read the diffs. The ip_frag patch is there...it's just sufficiently
different from the one posted to bugtraq, that it was not tagged as being
a reversed or already applied patch.

Most likely. 2.0.32 is lots of little fixes, and went through several
pre-patches...so hopefully its all fixes and no new bugs.

zless patch-2.0.32.gz

From time to time, various people have posted comments on the contents of
each patch, but I don't know if anyone's currently doing that.
