  ~ sendmail/conf.c                       

  > "read(..., ..., sizeof Y) < sizeof Y" is a dangerous idiom because it
  > does an unsigned comparison and read() can return -1. Use '!=' instead
  > of '<' since read() can't return more than 'sizeof Y'. Not perfect
  > (that would require a separate test for -1) but a very common usage.
  > We don't actually compile this code so there is no functional change.
  > Diff fixed & ok millert@ (krw@)

== sbin ============================================================== 02/04 ==

  > Problem found by ckuethe@, slightly different fix than the one
  > proposed by otto@ applied. (krw@)

  ~ machdep.c                             

  > Add support for some other CPU's.  Thank you to
  > jahrens at centtech for the information.

  ~ if_upgt.c                             

  > Since TX rate control is done by the firmware, we report the maximum
  > rate which is available. (mglocker@)


  ~ bpf.c                                 

  > Prevent USB network devices to generate a page fault trap when detached
  > while UP and holding an open bpf handler by checking bpfilter_lookup()
  > for returning NULL in bpfpoll().  Added an XXX comment which reminds us
  > to recheck why this race condition happens in conjunction with the USB
  > stack.
  > Commented by miod@ and thib@ (would prefer to directly fix race condition,
  > if this is possible at all).
  > lot of help and OK claudio@ (mglocker@)

  > validate argv, okay otto@, henning@ (espie@)
