I didn't remember, I had to dig around a bit to see what I had changed in
sys/compat/linux{,32}.  it looks like it was mainly:

 - adding the AT_RANDOM ELF aux entry
 - adding the *at() syscalls
 - increasing the linux kernel version that we claim to be

it shouldn't be a large set of changes to merge to netbsd 6.x,
but I had several bugs along the way so the main complication
would just be making sure to get all the fixes too (all by maxv I think).

note that a lot of the suse 13.1 packages in pkgsrc are vulnerable too,
it's been a while since they've been updated.
