Here are some of the changes HJ made that I think are important enough
for us to create a new version:
* nls/msgcat.c (catopen): Check if the message file is
really a file.
* libio/stdio/ferror.c (_IO_ferror):
* libio/stdio/putc.c (_IO_putc): New aliase for glibc
* libio/printf_fp.c (__printf_fp): Round number to even
according to IEEE 754-1985 4.1.
* locale/cur_max.c: new for glibc compatibility.
* <netinet/ip.h> (struct ip): change ip_csum to ip_sum.
* rpc/auth_des.c: fix some problems with secure rpc.
* <sys/quota.h>: new.
* libio/fileops.c: update from glibc 2.
