Recent BSD crosspollination

Michael Neumann has replaced suser(9) with priv(9), taken from FreeBSD, for fine-grained priviledge control.

Sepherosa Ziehau has added OpenBSD’s in_addprefix() and in_scrubprefix() from OpenBSD, which makes it possible to add two addresses within the same subnet to two separate network interfaces.  Read his post for a more descriptive synopsis.  Hes also made some original fixes.

He’s also added support (from FreeBSD) for the Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCIe ethernet controller, via ale(4), prompted by some Eee PC 1000H issues that were highlighted here before.
