SubjectAnnounce: modutils 2.3.21 is available
This is the "never release a security fix in a hurry" release.  The
security fixes in modutils 2.3.20 had some side effects on some config
files. Linus knocked back environment variable MOD_SAFEMODE, instead
the kernel propagates the real uid that caused modprobe to be invoked.

modutils-2.3.21.tar.bz2 Source tarball, includes RPM spec file
modutils-2.3.21-1.src.rpm As above, in SRPM format
modutils-2.3.21-1.i386.rpm Compiled with egcs-2.91.66, glibc 2.1.2
modutils-2.3.21-1.sparc.rpm Compiled for combined sparc 32/64

* Remove compile warnings in xstrcat.
