Yet another version of system V ipc. This one should work reasonably.
The patches are wrt linux-0.99p4 ... they should work with earlier
versions.

The file ipcbeta+.tar.Z can be found in :
  sunsite.unc.edu (pub/Linux/Incoming) pub/Linux/kernel/misc-patches
  tsx-11.mit.edu in pub/linux/patches.

The package contains installation instructions, test programs
and documentation (texi2roff does a fairly good job of converting 
from texinfo to roff for those who dont like info).

If you have any difficulty with installation I'd be happy to help.
I'd appreciate feedback on successes/failures, bug reports, fixes,
suggestions ...

I have uploaded ipcdelta.tar.z to 

sunsite.unc.edu (pub/Linux/Incoming) 
	pub/Linux/kernel/misc-patches/
tsx-11.mit.edu  
	pub/linux/patches/

This is a quick fix release for linux-0.99p7 
It will not work with earlier versions of the kernel.

Coming soon: There will be an improved release or inclusion 
in the standard linux distribution.


History:
ipcbeta  : don't use .... buggy as hell.
ipcbeta+ : works reasonably with linux-0.98p6? ... linux-0.99p6
ipcdelta : works with linux-0.99p7


Comments, bug reports etc. to bala...@cis.ohio-state.edu
