Hi all,

Here's an update of for master, dylan and danny. The
changes to master and danny are identical, but we need two commits
versus one for dylan. As for danny, I ported only the changes that I
needed for dash compliance, and created a kern-tools branch to track
that change. So the patch for danny has a SRCREV update and a switch
to the danny kern-tools branch.

The patches break down like this:
  master: zedd/kerntools-master
    [PATCH 1/1] kern-tools: refresh and make dash compliant 

  dylan: zedd/kerntools-dylan
    [PATCH dylan 1/2] kern-tools: anchor and delimit regexs
    [PATCH dylan 2/2] kern-tools: refresh and make dash complian
  danny: zedd/kerntools-danny
    [PATCH danny] kern-tools: refresh and make dash compliant

The problem was this:

  The separately packaged in the kern-tools package was
  missing upstream fixes, and in particular a change that ensures it is
  dash compatible.

  By grabbing that upstream commit and rebasing the existing patches on
  top of the new baseline, we are up to date and working on systems
  where /bin/sh is dash.

I've tested the kernel config on all branches, as well as busy box on
master and dylan. The before and after .configs are the same and we
are dash compliant. But it's worth doing some sanity tests, just in
case I messed up the juggling of the three branches!
