Hi,

I've updated the Linux 2.2 patch to include support for trampoline
calls generated with gcc 2.96-69 found in Red Hat Linux 7.0 updates.
While I don't think there's much use for this now (why harden a
system which isn't production quality anyway?), this change would be
required at some stage.  So it's better to be prepared.  Thanks to
Eugene Kanter for reporting the problem.

Other recent updates include the patch for Linux 2.0.39 (this was
scheduled, so I didn't post here).  I've included the applicable
changes made in Linux 2.2 patches during the past year into this
2.0.39 update:

Two popa3d patches for POP-before-SMTP have been contributed.  One,
by Garry Glendown, updates a sendmail-compatible Berkeley db file.
The other, by Tomasz Rzad, uses Eugene Crosser's whoson protocol.
Both are linked from the popa3d page (and are available in contrib/
on the FTP):

"Whoson" protocol:
