    Merry Yule to you too.

    Not wishing to be too ungrateful to Santa but

    - The broken AX.25 patches are not reverted so that doesn't work on some

    - It seems the security hole inducing exec_id change was not reverted
    and I've not yet found any other changes that fix the same problem
    (setuid_app >/proc/self/mem) in 2.6.10. It was actually quite nasty as a
    hole because you can seek the fd to the right target address before
    execing. With the other /proc changes did I miss something on this one

    I'll check it all over in more detail when I generate 2.6.10-ac
    (probably tomorrow), which will be nice as the patch will be a _lot_
    shorter and USB storage a lot happier than 2.6.9 based systems.
