delphij's Chaos

Bigger bin patch accepted by FreeBSD

It seems that FreeBSD community has reviewed and committed one of my bigger patch on sbin/syslogd, which was primarily obtained from OpenBSD. These changes are more or less “sync with OpenBSD”, which will increase security performance of FreeBSD.

For me, there is something which should be more careful about. (1) Submit patch in different, unrelated hunks so it would be easier for a committer to back part of it out. (2) Give more comments so they won’t bother to write their own ones.

Interestingly the patch included in my patch was not a part of delphijfork by this time. I would merge the changes ASAP to delphijfork.
