It compiles with tons of warnings and errors, and wipes several config
options from .config that require the user to manually enter in the
.config file. Once you've gotten past this point, it does run just
fine. I think you should post David's patch on so folks
can get the whole thing from there if they choose. At present, unless
you specifically know where to go to get the patch, and have downloaded
SKI and NUE, some folks may not know where to get this patch.

Also, in any event, someone who owns this stuff needs to fix the compile
errors with memset() and strlen() and the problem with "make config"
zapping some of the config options.
