   20061214:
           Following the move of string_to_flags() and flags_to_string()
           from the bin/ls/ sources to libutil, users doing UPDATE builds
           will need to do a "make cleandir" in
                   tools/mtree/, tools/makefs/, tools/binstall/, tools/pax/,
                   bin/pax/, bin/ls/, usr.sbin/mtree/, usr.sbin/makefs/,
                   usr.bin/xinstall/, and libexec/ftpd/
           in order to excise stale references to the old stat_flags.h header
           file in the ls sources -- stat_flags.h has been removed.
   
   20061108:
           The configure script used in the src/tools/gcc compiler has been
           changed to indicate that our libc has ssp support built-in and
           does not depend on -lssp and -lssp-nonshared. You'll need to
           make clean in src/tools/gcc first to rebuild the compiler.
   
   20061009:
           The sysctl variables net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.newreno are no longer
           available. Use net.inet{,6}.tcp{,6}.congctl.selected instead.
   
   20060814:
           The vt, vidcconsole, kbd, and rpckbd drivers on acorn32 have been
           withdrawn.  Use vidcvideo and pckbd instead.  See the GENERIC
           kernel configuration for an example.  X servers from the last
           few years should cope.
   
   20060703:
           MPACPI is no more. We always configure PCI interrupts using ACPI
           if we have an ACPI kernel. The option MPACPI_SCANPCI has been renamed
           to ACPI_SCANPCI. Thanks to work from fvdl.
   
   20060627:
           socket(2) has changed, and its system call has been versioned.
           For userlands with the old version of socket(2), make sure that
           your kernel has 'options COMPAT_30' set, or else 'bad system call'
           errors will result.
   
   20060526:
           The kernel linker scripts for i386 and xen
           (sys/arch/i386/conf/kern.ldscript*) were changed to set the
           load address correctly, for the benefit of MULTIBOOT boot loaders
           (like Grub). If you use a linker (ld) older than from 2006/04/17, it
           will be unable to link the kernel because of a bug and ld will fail
           with an error like:
               ../../../../arch/i386/conf/kern.ldscript:45 \
                   non constant expression for load base
           You need to update at least src/gnu/dist/binutils/ld and recompile
           and install the linker. If using the build.sh script, the easiest
           way is with a "build.sh tools" command, with any other options
           that you use normally. When using build.sh, the linker binary is
           installed as ${TOOLDIR}/bin/i386--netbsdelf-ld.
   
   20060131:
           the protocol between the sparc64 bootloader (ofwboot) and
           the kernel was changed. Before installing a new kernel,
           you need to update ofwboot. After a full build, just copy
           /usr/mdec/ofwboot to /, or do a rebuild of
           src/sys/arch/sparc/stand/ofwboot and install the result to /.
   
   20050917:
           arch/*/conf/std.* was changed to include conf/std, which
           contains MI options previously enabled by default.
           If you have kernel config files which doesn't include
           arch/*/conf/std.*, you need to edit them to include conf/std
           to get the previous configuration.
   
   20050830:
           named.conf was moved from /etc/namedb to /etc.
           postinstall(8) migrates this during interactive use.
           Users of MKUPDATE=yes will need to manually rectify
           this in their DESTDIR.
   
   20050825:
           Some data structures in sys/device.h, related to interface
           attributes and locator names, were changed. config(1) was
           modified to emit the new data structures.
           Thus usr.bin/config must be updated (and run on the kernel
           configuration file) before a new kernel can be built.
   
   20050531:
           genassym.sh(8) was moved to genassym(1). You need to either build
           tools first or install the version of genassym from /usr/bin before
           you can build a kernel again.
   
   20050520:
           Because a kernfs bug which xentools relies on was fixed,
           xentools up to xentools20-2.0.3nb4 won't work with new kernel.

         upgrade.          upgrade.
   
   20050325:
           pcppi(4) was separated in two devices, adding attimer(4).  Be sure
           to add a config line for an attimer(4) device in your kernel
           configuration, or you won't be able to set the pitch of the beep
           with wsconsctl.  Depending on the default value for the pitch, you
           might even not hear any more beep.  Also, it is advised to attach both
           devices the same way (i.e., both on isa or both on acpi) or the
           pcppi(4) device may fail to find the attimer(4) one.
