Spread all over the mailing list... Why don't you just look at the
contents and try to figure out? Well, here goes...

BTW, I just uploaded a newer version of kernel-patches.tgz with more

clock.c: fix writing the day of week back to the RTC (Soekris BIOS
resets the date to 1-1-1970 if it's invalid - 0 is not a valid
weekday as per the AT specification)

if_ethersubr.c: disable multicast warning in bridge code

if_xl.c: disable hardware TX checksumming

ip_input.c: fix problem with packets from dummynet pipes getting
NATed again

ip_nat.c: fix ipfilter bug (only required for 3.4.31)

ip_output.c: reverse ipfilter/ipfw processing order

ng_pptpgre.c: reduce ACK timeout to 1 second, disable PPTP windowing

subr_diskslice.c: disable warning about partition size
