Some Patches

HTTP accept filter patch

This trivial patch, relative to 8.0-CURRENT May 2009, adds the POST method to the requests buffered by the accf_http kernel module. This reduces the webserver's vulnerability to DOS attacks by script kiddies using scripts like slowloris
accf_http.patch
Note that the http accept filter was not intended to be used as an anti-DOS tool. For now, this seems to work though.

Sony vaio VGN-S5M/S patch

This patch, relative to 5.4-RELEASE, makes my vaio VGN-S5M/S laptop recognise the internal SATA controller for what it is. It's in the FreeBSD PR database here
vaio-sata.patch


MP3 player patch

This quirk will make the Time DPA20B 1GB MP3 player work in FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE. I'm told this player is also rebranded as Xirion, so this may work for some of those players as well.
It's in the FreeBSD PR database here
scsi_da.c.patch

mount_mfs patch

This patch adds the -P option to mount_mfs. The idea is, when using a filesystem image as backend for a memory filesystem, you probably don't want to newfs it first. The -P option skips the newfs part.
This one is against 5.1-current. There's also a FreeBSD Problem Report.
mdmfs.patch

FTPD patch

The reason for this patch is that I didn't want to accidentally create a useraccount that can "browse the directory tree" using ftp. With this patch, when using the new option -c to ftpd, only users that are in the file /etc/ftpchroot will be allowed access. And they will be restricted (chrooted) to their own homedirectory.
It's a patch against FreeBSD 4.5 STABLE, but it probably works on later versions as well.
ftpd.patch
