Please only say you care iff,

2 - you have time to fix things
I just indirectly fixed/added a few things during the last few days
which will solve a few current bugs, as well as be able to prevent a few
bugs in future:
- http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gcc.patches/166978 (gcc built-in
locking functions for hppa)
- http://sourceware.org/ml/libc-ports/2008-07/msg00010.html (*context
functions for glibc on hppa).
Both patches are waiting for Carlos to return from vacation on August
2nd. The gcc patch was already taken by JDA and he will feed it upstream
after talking to Carlos.
I forgot to mention those two recent kernel patches which are important
for installation and avoid further debian bug reports:
- http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ports.parisc/405 (avoid boot
crashes with specific STI graphic cards)
- http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.input/5340 (use old HIL
driver during installation)
Both patches were accepted upstream. (maybe I should tell debian kernel
maintainers to include them?)
