pkgsrc/sysutils/memtest86: Makefile distinfo
Update to 2.9.
The memory sizing code has been completely rewritten. By default
Memtest86 gets a memory map from the BIOS that is now used to find
available memory. A new online configuration option provides three
choices for how memory will be sized, including the old "probe" method.
The default mode generally will not test all of memory, but should be more
stable. See the "Memory Sizing" section for details.
Testing of more than 2gb of memory should now work. A number of bugs
were found and corrected that prevented testing above 2gb. Testing
with more than 2gb has been limited and there could be problems with a
full 4gb of memory.
Memory is divided into segments for testing. This allow for frequent
progress updates and responsiveness to interactive commands. The
memory segment size has been increased from 16 to 32mb. This should
improve testing effectivness but progress reports will be less frequent.
Minor bug fixes.
