Jail testers needed (rc.d/jail)

Hey lists,

Two or three days before the CVS tree has been tagged for FreeBSD
6.1-RELEASE, I've committed a broken version of the jail rc.d script.

The symptoms are:

- an ifconfig error message if you don't define a jail_interface and
have at least one jail configured, this one is harmless.
- a problem with one of the following variable: jail_exec,
jail_exec_start, jail_exec_stop, jail_flags and especially jail_fstab;
if you have at least two jails configured.

I committed yesterday a fix that should supposedly fix both of these
issues so I'd need all jail users running either FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE or
6-STABLE (older than two days) to try the new script [1] and report the
result, either successful or not. Once I'll get enough successful
reports, I'll contact the Release Engineering team to make sure the
patch makes it to the RELENG_6_1 branch.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Note: Keep me CC'ed as I'm not (yet) subscribed to these lists.
