+<p>This uname implementation is cross compile friendly: when built as a 32 bit
+binary on an x86_64 host, it reports "i686" to confuse autoconf less.</p>
+<p>This cksum has several extra command line options which can be used to
+produce different cksum variants based on the same crc32 algorithm.  For
+example, the broadcom "trx" image packaging uses a little endian crc,
+pre-inverted instead of post-inverted, and does not include the length.

+netcat bugs.  It also fixed multiple bugs in "patch", works around a
+reiserfs bug in cp, and oneit can reboot on exit more reliably.</p>
