Linux 2.4.37.4


I've just released Linux 2.4.37.4.

It fixes a build error that my last fix to memcmp has introduced
on some archs such as MIPS. It also removes annoying warnings that
were emitted when building with CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y. This time I
have built for i386, x86_64 and alpha, so we should be fine.

Another relevant fix is related to the personality issue recently
discovered by Julien Tinnes and Tavis Ormandy and fixed in kernel
2.6. While performing deeper checks on 2.4 with Solar Designer, we
found that some archs such as x86_64 are similarly affected while
others like i386 and alpha are not. I would appreciate it if arch
maintainers and/or people well aware of the personality uses could
help us figuring out how this is *supposed* to work and fix the
affected code path. Right now we have applied a common preventive
fix which protects against initial NULL mapping when mmap_min_addr
is correctly set. This should be enough even on untested architectures,
but that's not a reason for not fixing them.

The rest is minor ; fix for some failures to correctly detect some USB
flash drives, and proper MTU checks on tulip to fix VLAN support (tested
and works).

The patch and changelog will appear soon at the following locations:

Note for those who have already upgraded to 2.4.37.3 : the security fix
is not *that* serious, as it protects against faulty setuid programs. If
you don't have any issues with 2.4.37.3, there's no emergency to upgrade.
