    About: The Linux Port/Socket Pseudo ACLs patch allows an administrator to
    delegate privileges for some protected network resources to non-root users.
    The ACLs are generally used to run untrusted or insecure applications as an
    unprivileged process, thereby mitigating some undiscovered denial of
    service or root compromise. The ACLs cover protected ports, raw sockets,
    and packet sockets.
    Changes: The compile issue with modular ipv6 stack has been fixed. A "make
    config" warning when packet socket is modular has been added. Updated to
    kernel 2.4.10.
