..is out in http://www.rsbac.org/pre.

- New patches for 2.4.0-test8 and 2.2.17
- Some smaller fixes
- acl_remove_user: removes all acl settings for given user. You need ACL right 
   DELETE for target USER :DEFAULT: to call this (included in new default for
   secoff / uid 400)

- Several admin tools changes:
    - Stansilav's new rsbac-klogd version
    - Backup for RC: rc_get_item backup
    - All backups as before do not save standard values. This is a problem, if
       you change inheritance settings in kernel config or admin tools Makefile.
       There will probably be a switch soon to backup everything, no matter what
       values you have or what size your backup gets - it will be huge... :)
    - New script examples/backup_all, which tries to backup everything as
       restore script to stdout (except adf_log_levels and PM special data)
    - rsbac_fd_menu and rsbac_dev_menu updated to accept individual MAC
       security levels (English version only)
    - acl_rm_user: simply calls acl_remove_user

- Stanislav's MAC patch. The *-property behaviour has changed a bit and should
   be more usable now. The default values are still unchanged, but root can now
   be sec_level 0, if you set mac_trusted for /bin/login etc.

- 2.2.17 SMP is reported to run much better since as of pre1, but please test it
   and report.

- 2.4.0-test8 is still not stable enough with RSBAC - at least on my test
   system. I'd appreciate reports, with or without SMP. Note: Hangs only occur
   at boot here (e.g. when starting syslogd/klogd), and the next reboot often
   works fine.

- Please also note that syscall number still differ between 2.2 and 2.4 patches
   to keep compatible with older RSBAC patches for 2.2. You need to recompile
   admin tools, if changing between these two series.
