hmm, not a nice move. Now I have to patch my complete built-enviroment
again. But a good chance to remove some of my ECOFF binaries and
save a little disk space. Nevertheless some useless work for me.
Do I need to rebuilt all Mips user binaries, or do the old one still
work ? If not, is there a chance for a new root-x.xx.tar.gz ?
See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux,
you have to be a sneaky bastard too ;-)
