Hi,                                                                   
                                                                      
attached are three patch files.                                       
                                                                      
1) a number of patches to avoid warnings.                             
I think I have posted most of them earlier but here they are          
again.                                                                
2) kernel poll for the snap shot with --enable-kernel-poll as         
requested.                                                            
3) a patch against R8B-1 to build properly under HP'sUX-11.           
                                                                      
BR

> This is a request for portability patches to be included before the
