Subjectuser-mode port 0.34-2.4.0-test11
The user-mode port of 2.4.0-test11 is available.

UML is now able to run as a daemon, i.e. with no stdin/stdout/stderr.

The hostfs filesystem now works as a readonly filesystem. It's now
configurable. I'm using it as a module. It ought to work compiled into the
kernel, but I haven't checked this.

I fixed a number of bugs.

NOTE: If you compile from source, you must put 'ARCH=um' on the make command
line or in the environment, like:
make linux ARCH=um
ARCH=um make linux
export ARCH=um
make linux

This is because I've changed the top-level Makefile to build either a native
kernel or a usermode kernel, with the default being native. This is in
preparation for submitting this port to the main pool. The ARCH calculation
is now this:

# SUBARCH tells the usermode build what the underlying arch is. That is set
# first, and if a usermode build is happening, the "ARCH=um" on the command
# line overrides the setting of ARCH below. If a native build is happening,
# then ARCH is assigned, getting whatever value it gets normally, and
# SUBARCH is subsequently ignored.

SUBARCH := $(shell uname -m | sed -e s/i.86/i386/ -e s/sun4u/sparc64/ -e
s/arm.*/arm/ -e s/sa110/arm/)

If anyone has any objections to this going in the main pool, let me know, and
also let me know what you would suggest as a fix.
