* Tue Nov 15 2005
- added close.patch provided by Ted Tso (IBM) to fix bug #132708

*grin* Maybe obsolete by now?  haven't looked closely.

Probably same as why we have something similar; for one reason or other
need to rerun autoconf, and e2fsprogs isn't compatible with latest
autoconf.  (This is a patch I inherited, and haven't yet investigated
all the details)

Hm, I had similar issues with uuidd too - common theme here?

And I have a patch to do the latter as well.  Interesting how we've
arrived at similar needed changes, independently.  :)

and Patch99:        e2fsprogs-no_cmd_hiding.patch

honestly I like that; I should whip up a nice patch to emulate kbuild,
with V=1 or something, unless there is some other easy way to show full
build commands already?
