As both these two paragraphs didn't work out as described, I went ahead
and decided to do the work myself...  The patches are submitted to the
git mailing list, the ``access (NULL, m)'' one already got applied, the
trivial `Makefile' one not yet, but I think that's just because the
maintainer missed it in all those hundreds of emails rushing through that
mailing list.  I'll resubmit that one somewhen later.

Michael, again, please apply these two attached patches to the Debian
`git' package, build and upload.  You did say that the Debian git build
system does not run the included git test suite, right?  Because running
that one may still do harm to the ext2fs file system translator which is
serving the build directory.  (See
<http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2007-05/msg00002.html> for my
original report about that problem.)
