Hi folks...

This is important to ANYONE who build libc after this morning's SUP,
and has the libc w/ pread and pwrite (i.e.

REMOVE THIS SHARED LIBRARY!  I goofed, and didn't deal with the off_t
padding properly.  I am fixing this right now.

What you must do after this is fixed:

	(1) Build a new kernel and boot it, otherwise the fixed will not work!

	(2) Build a new, and install it... The fixed will not work with an old kernel!!

I could change the system call numbers, but the window for brokenness
is only a day.  I suspect not very many people will be affected by this.

If you are, I'm sorry, and I'll do what I can to help you if you get
stuck (e.g. provide new binaries for Alpha, SPARC, i386,
and m68k).

Many thanks to Juergen Hannken-Illjes to reported the problem...
