OK - trains are wonderful things. I generated the patch on the way
home from work. I have applied it to my home machine and the kernel
built ok so it is looking good. aaah the joys of cvs.
For people who are interested on ftp.netbsd.org under
/pub/NetBSD/misc/blymn there are three files:
1) README.1ST - this has the instructions for applying the patch, read
and understand this document first, you cannot just apply the patch
and expect things to work.
2) sexec_patch - the actual patch file see the contents of README.1ST
for instructions on how to apply it.
3) sexec.txt - a copy of a paper I presented on this modification at
an Australian Unix Users Group conference.
Before offering comments, make sure you read the points I make in
README.1ST as there are some things that I know are not implemented in
the best manner - this really was a first cut proof of concept
