Uploaded util-linux 2.9g-6 (source i386) to master

Ok, so if we really want a Debian 2.1 that is 100% kernel 2.2.x
compatible it needs this package to be included in frozen.
I've just uploaded it in Incoming/ 10 minutes ago.
Non-developers can also access it at http://www.ldsol.com/~vincent/
(NB: there are _2_ binary packages to install: util-linux and mount.)

Needless to say that before to be eventually included in frozen, this
package must be _heavily_ tested. So if you're currently running the
frozen distribution, please install this package and report any problem
you may find.

NB: back in June 1996, I decided to switch from Slackware to Debian
because Debian 1.1 (codename: buzz ;) was the very first to be kernel
2.0.x ready. So I hope having Debian 2.1 kernel 2.2.x ready will attract a
lot a new users to Debian. ;)

 util-linux (2.9g-6) frozen unstable; urgency=low
   * modify mount.8 manpage to warn that nosuid is useless
     if something like suidperl is installed.
     (doesn't fix the critical bug #31980 reported on suidperl,
     but at least warn about its existance)
   * add missing manpages (ramsize,rootflags,swapdev)
   * #32414: changed a 'rm' into 'rm -f' so the source
     package builds cleanly.
   * also target the upload for frozen since this is the only missing
     package to be able to safely use kernels 2.2.x:
     To the FTP/Release maintainers:
       util-linux_2.9g has been introduced in unstable on Dec, 31st 98;
       so far I received no bug reports about it except for the missing
       manpages. Also compared to the 2.7.1 version from frozen, this
       package fixes _57_ bugs. (see www.debian.org/Bugs/db/pa/lutil-linux.html)
