What's new:

- New open(2) flags O_TMPFILE and O_NOATIME.

- scanf/wscanf now handle the POSIX %m modifier.

- Improved hostprogs compatibility for cross-compiling the Linux kernel.
  New headers: <asm/bitsperlong.h>, <asm/posix_types.h>.

- Built-in implementation of Stack Smashing Protection compiler feature.
  New APIs: __stack_chk_fail, __stack_chk_guard.

- Built-in implementation of _FORTIFY_SOURCE guards for functions in
  <stdio.h>, <stdlib.h>, <string.h>, <strings.h>, <unistd.h>, <wchar.h>,
  <sys/poll.h>, and <sys/socket.h>.
  New APIs:  __chk_fail, __gets_chk, __memcpy_chk, __memmove_chk, __mempcpy_chk,
  __memset_chk, __snprintf_chk, __sprintf_chk, __stpcpy_chk, __stpncpy_chk,
  __strcat_chk, __strcpy_chk, __strncat_chk, __strncpy_chk, __vsnprintf_chk,

What changed:

- Standard headers no longer use macros to support K&R C.

- confstr(3) and getconf(1) accept LFS_CFLAGS, LFS_LDFLAGS, etc.

  compatible with glibc.

  <strings.h>, and <unistd.h>.

Bug Fixes

  Addresses: Shows up in GAWK testsuite test "testext"

- Fix errno setting bug in posix_fadvise and posix_fallocate.

- Fix two bugs in the limit of large numbers of sockets.

- Fix a fork failure with private anonymous mmaps.

- Remove a call to fflush from ftell{o}, which may result in wrong offsets.
