        On all Un*x systems I know, the werase character deletes the
        previous even if there are white space characters between the cursor
        and the previous word. In MiNT the word was only deleted if the cursor
        was at the end of the word. I fixed this behaviour to be like Un*x.

        restore the old check whether the size of a block matches the
        requested size.
        The code I fixed always checks for enough size to save the requested
        memory plus the size of a block header, however this made the test
        whether to unlink the block completly always fail. I restored the old
        behaviour (which has worked for me in (a fixed) MiNT 1.09 for around
        half a year without problems).

        - Changed f_chown, so a user can change the group of a file
        to any of his supplementary groups, not only the effective group id.
        Also added one more "posix"ism; if the file has set-uid or set-gid bit
        set these bits are reset when f_chown is called by a non-root process
        and the file is not a directory.

        - Added BSD-like setgid and sticky bit
        semantics for directories. Setgid semantics are implemented in do_open
        and d_mkdir, so that any file or directory that is created in a
        directory whose setgid bit is on, will be created with a group id
        equal to that of the directory instead of the process' effective group
        id. (This complements nicely the existence of supplementary groups
        :-). Sticky bit semantics prevent any non-root process from deleting a
        file or directory in a directory with sticky bit on, which the process
        doesn't own. This is implemented d_delete, f_delete and f_rename(!).
        As a side effect I modified the dir_access routine, so that it returns
        the file mode bits in a (new) third parameter.

        another GEM crash workaround... :)  (and give processes a bit more
        time for shutdown)  if you use execgem also add the F_ALLOCZERO bit to
        its create-basepage Pexec, you can check a running process memflags
        with Julians ps (ps -wvx).

cookie.h, dos.c, main.c, makefile, proto.h, cookie.c (new):
	From: evanlang@uss.lonestar.org (Evan Langlois)
	Subject: mint 1.11 patch
	Message-Id: <m0qYtQm-0004pkC@uss.lonestar.org>

        added the s_cookie() call for reading system cookie
        information.  This is mainly the cookie jar, but also the
        200Hz timer, and possibly other info if you decide to support
        it.  This code is a bit buggy in that it needs a proper sanity
        check (see code) and the jar resizing doesn't work. The code
        worked with Malloc() before I put it in the kernel, but I
        guess I'm not allocating the new memory region properly.
        Main.c and cookie.h were changed for readability - no more
        treating cookie tags as a string.  Cookie.h lists the values
        for the cookies - and could be expanded into a "master
        listing" of cookies.

        prefixed cookie definitions in cookie.h with "COOKIE_"  --hohmuth
        added prototypes for local functions in cookie.c        --hohmuth

        changed DIRSEP so that a Unix slash is accepted by all file
        systems except TOSFS (and maybe other NO_PARSE systems).  This
        has been well tested - it makes things easier with no side effects
        that I can tell.

	From: evanlang@uss.lonestar.org (Evan Langlois)
	Subject: mint 1.11 patch

        and added a new flag to all file systems
        included in the kernel except unifs and tosfs.  These changes
        are the file cookie cache.  It speeds lookup operations to twice
        the speed (on my system anyway).  The flag mentioned above tells
        the system not to cache the file cookies for that system (I found
        that a background top could eat up lots of cookies in the proc
        filesystem, so I decided not to cache /proc, /pipe, /dev, or
        /shm).  It doesn't cache NO_PARSE systems either.  Everything for
        this is ifdef'd.  You must compile with -DFCOOKIE_CACHE to use
        this code.

        #define FCOOKIE_CACHE in mint.h, making this the default  --hohmuth
