  Modified files:
    usr.sbin/newsyslog   newsyslog.c 
  Major re-ordering of the steps that newsyslog will use when processing
  files to rotate.  The new order will first rotate all files that need
  to be rotated, and then send a single signal to each process which
  needs to be signaled, and finally it will compress all the files which
  were rotated.
  This means daemons will be signaled once per run of newsyslog, instead
  of once per file rotated.  Also, files will be compressed in order of
  file-size (smallest to largest).  Also, it waits for each file to be
  completely compressed before starting the next one (effectively as if
  the 'w' flag is specified for all entries in newsyslog.conf).  This
  avoids the situation of having 10 gzip's going at the same time (each
  with a log.0 and a log.0.gz file active), and it also means that file
  attributes can be reliably set on files after they are compressed.
  NOTE: This commit does define NEWORDER (which you could get rid of if
  you really don't trust this), but it does not flip the "-D neworder"
  switch.  So, at the moment none of these changes happen unless you
  request them (perhaps by adding '<debug> neworder' in newsyslog.conf).
