      Add ability to choose compression type for initramfs · 7e1cd70e
      Ryan Jackson authored
      Add '-c' option to gen_initramfs.sh to choose the compression type.
      Currently, it supports the following types: gzip (default), bzip2, lzma,
      and none.
      The toplevel Makefile now has a variable to specify the compression type
      of the initramfs, and passes it to gen_initramfs.sh.  Currently it is
      set to lzma by default.

      Update of Linux MFS to kernel, etc. · 1b6f6b13
      Ryan Jackson authored
      The following components of the Linux MFS were updated:
      Linux kernel =>
      buildroot => 2010.02
      uClibc =>
      busybox => 1.16.0
      binutils => 2.20
      gcc => 4.2.4
      gmp => 4.2.4
      The Dell Optiplex reboot patch was removed from the kernel build as it
      is already present in
      The update was done because:
      - The kernel was over a year old and significant updates have happened
        since then.
      - A few new useful features were added to busybox
      - The kernel now supports bzip2 and lzma compression for itself and
        initramfs in addition to gzip.  Using lzma instead of gzip saves us at
        least 1.5 MB for the kernel+initramfs, possibly more.

      Add toolchain Makefile · 8c3145ba
      Ryan Jackson authored
      Added a makefile to build the toolchain via buildroot.  Everything now
      depends on the toolchain having been built, so a simple 'make' should
      build everything.
      Added patches to change getline() to _getline() in Linux's and uClibc's
      unifdef build utility.  This fixes compile errors on recent glibc
      versions that define their own getline() function.

      Lots of changes. Here are some of the significant ones: · c08e7725
      Ryan Jackson authored
      - Cleanup of filesystem layout

        compatible with the standard useradd and groupadd commands
      - Wrappers for ((user|group)(add|del))
      - Getopt perl module added
      - Working sudo setup
      - Portmap added to support NFS mounts with locking.
      - Syslog added, but not currently configured. Primarily intended for
        troubleshooting strange problems.
      - Fixes to permissions
      - rc.mounts, rc.localize, and rc.accounts work now.

      Added Perl. · 4bb1db66
      Ryan Jackson authored
      - /usr/bin/perl is only 850K (due to being linked against uClibc)
      - 99.572% of test cases pass (some Embed tests and pwent/grent tests fail)
      - First pass at installing only modules we need: /usr/lib/perl5/5.88
        is only 1.2 meg decompressed.

      Finally committed all of my Linux MFS stuff.  It's not done yet, but enough is there that I need to get it into version control before I lose it.
      This includes:
      - Build tree for a Linux frisbee MFS (the source tarballs are in ops:/share/linux/mfs/source)
      - Patch for pxelinux to add bootinfo support
      - Patch for grub to support our magic config sector
