I made 1.3.18 available on the normal ftp sites.. This release fixes:

- ptrace(POKE_DATA/POKE_CODE) used to do bad things to the page tables,
which resulted in problems especially on Pentiums with the newly
enabled extended page table setup. Now strace/gdb should work
correctly again (same bug in the i386 and alpha trees: with the
current memory management I should really move those functions to the
generic mm sources.)

- aztcd driver update

- ext2fs cleanups (remove old compatibility code)

- lp.c update. Better statistics and support for slow printers.

- various small fixes to network driver modularizations

- arcnet driver update

- /proc filesystem cleanup started. /proc/net is cleaner, I'll fix the
others to be more coherent soon, I hope.

- sound driver update (v 3.0.1)

- various networking patches (routing metrics, arp sanity checks, ip
fragmentation+forwarding hopefully fixed)

Thanks to those that sent in patches, and if I have missed some please
keep me informed. And please test this all out.. (it works for me, so
it's obviously bugfree, but testing is what you don't get paid for).
