Hi Manuel,

I am just obersving udefined PTL symbols randomly on our machine ..
I am downloading and applying the rc2 patch which fixes this problem.
But, I have  a kernel which has lots of changes over 1.6 and it will be
tough to merge those with this downloaded version.

I learn that there have been ABI changes also, but wasnt sure if there are
changes between 1.6.1 we have as our base and 1.6.1.rc2 , are there ?
is it possible /  logical if I download and overwrite this patch over a
vanilla 1.6.1 and get / use only the relavant files from new compiled
netbsd ?
(if yes, what files would these be ?)

But , if ABI  changes are there then this wont work I guess .. is there any
other way around this mess I am in now .. ?
( we are running it on i386 btw ) u mentioned that ABI changes are not for
all plattforms .. ?
