New Revision: 344455

  Direct commit for some clarification/correction
  The notice in UPDATING stated the wrong direction for the link.
  Additionally, it's decidedly not a bad idea to throw in a comment mandating
  that the ordering of LOADER_DEFAULT_INTERP bits remains the same in this
  branch. This makes it even more obvious from diff review (against head) that
  this difference is intentional and creates merge conflicts if someone tries
  to apply the original commit manually.  I suspect this won't be a problem
  given the set of people that maintain loader bits in stable/11, but it does
  offer a peace of mind.
