    MFC 204090:

    bsdjhb committed
    Fix mptutil's method for locating disk devices attached to a specific
    mpt(4) controller.  Previously, the code assumed that multiple match
    patterns provided to an XPT_DEV_MATCH request were ANDed together.
    Instead, they are ORed.  Instead, to match peripherals for a specific bus,
    one query needs to be performed to lookup the path ID of the bus.  A second
    query can then be performed matching peripherals attached to that path.
    This approach also makes the code a bit cleaner as the returned match
    results do not mix buses and perphierals.

    bsdjhb committed
    … rather
    than the APIC ID of the boot CPU prior to SI_SUB_SMP.  This resulted in
    some storage controllers not being able to enumerate attached devices when
    using MSI/MSI-X interrupts.  This only affects <= 7.x, so it is a direct
    commit to 7.3 rather than an MFC.

    Upgrade to BIND 9.4-ESV. This version incorporates all bug and security
    fixes since the release of 9.4.3, including the most recent -P5 security
    fix detailed below.
    From the README:
    BIND 9.4-ESV will be supported until December 31, 2010, at
    which time you will need to upgrade to the current release
    of BIND.
    This versions address the following vulnerabilities:
    BIND 9 Cache Update from Additional Section
    A nameserver with DNSSEC validation enabled may incorrectly add
    unauthenticated records to its cache that are received during the
    resolution of a recursive client query
    BIND 9 DNSSEC validation code could cause bogus NXDOMAIN responses
    There was an error in the DNSSEC NSEC/NSEC3 validation code that could
    cause bogus NXDOMAIN responses (that is, NXDOMAIN responses for records
    proven by NSEC or NSEC3 to exist) to be cached as if they had validated
    These issues only affect systems with DNSSEC validation enabled.
