Subject: Preparing for releases 1.1.0 and 1.0.1

I believe all of the key targets for 1.1.0 have been met, and we also
have fixed several bugs of sufficient severity that a maintenance
release to the 1.0 series is called for.

The commits which I plan to cherry-pick into the 1.0.1 release are:


Note that 5446303328adf4b4e36d9fba21848e6feb55fab4, the malloc brk
exhaustion issue, is not yet in the list. While I'm doubtful that it
has any serious problems, I'd rather get it some more exposure before
putting it into the maintenance-only stable branch.

(BTW, does anyone with git expertise know how I can make git
cherry-pick -x skip a line before the "(cherry picked...)" message?
Perhaps there's a config option or a hook I could use?)

Things I could use help from volunteers on are:

- Reviewing changes, especially the above commits, to make sure they
  don't have any stupid mistakes.

- Running tests and reporting any test regressions.

- Testing x32 and/or sh ports to determine if they're of sufficient
  quality to promote up from "experimental" to the list of officially
  supported archs.

- Informing me of any pending patches or trivial fix requests I might
  have misplaced that could be committed before release.
