I would like to thank Gedare and Eugen Leontie (Roxana's
husband :) for this effort.

He has been gracious enough to submit it as a series of
patches through Bugzilla (PRs 1561-1565).  I have reviewed
the cpukit patch (1561), built it, and think it is OK to commit to the

Please take this time to review it if you are interested.  My
plan is to review one chunk at a time, comment in the PR
and then commit it when I think it it ready.

BUT.. I want to wait 24 hours before committing the first
chunk in case people have comments.  So please make
comments on these patches if you are interested. After
24 hours, I will be reviewing and committing as each piece
passes review from all commenters.

This is really an attempt to open up the review of large
submissions.  Please participate.
