Re: [Patch] Upgrade libpcap to 1.5.3

Since I didn't get any replies at all, I'm going to assume that my patch
either got lost in the other mails or that I should have posted a complete
patch (i.e. a direct patch that upgrades libpcap without needing to follow
any other steps).

Hence, this mail is both a BUMP as well as a mail with the complete patch
attached. This time, only the patch need be run and libpcap is directly
upgraded to 1.5.3.

Attached: libpcap_upgrade_to_1.5.3.patch

PS: I'm sending this again since it seems like it didn't get received into
the system last time.

I have modified the patches in libpcap/NMAP_MODIFICATIONS so that they
work with libpcap-1.5.3, downloaded from http://www.tcpdump.org/

After modifying the patches, I ran a `svn diff > nmap.patch` and have
attached the nmap.patch file.

After applying the attached patch, following the steps in
libpcap/NMAP_MODIFICATIONS/HOWTO-UPGRADE should patch the libpcap
files and upgrade libpcap to 1.5.3.

If I need to change something or look at something again, please do let me
