I'm not sure what happened with this specific patch, but as a general
plan they wish to push patches upstream, although it seems we've rejected
several of their diffs so far. The full set of their patches are in their
svn repository at
and are divided into three categories - changes that are already in our
tree now but were not in 8.1, patches they intend to send our way, and
patches that are not appropriate for FreeBSD or that we've rejected.
I'll see if I can find one of the GNU/kFreeBSD people willing to write
up a short summary for each of the patches they apply (and take the
thread to freebsd-hackers, if so).
