Re: [ANN] yaboot critical update (1.2.3)

Hello Ben,

Is this also likely to affect 2.4 kernels on oldworld Macs?

I've uploaded yaboot 1.2.3 to http://www.penguinppc.org/~benh.

This is a critical update. I found a nasty bug in all previous
versions that could cause some issues with the kernel memory mappings.

Newer kernels (including my rsync) are likely to be more affected,
but the problem is potentially here with any 2.4.
