OK to apply to branch and head?

Yes for both 4.2 and 4.3.     (On the assumption that the module list
for 4.2 is unchanged apart from the format)

Two other issues discovered during this patch:
James, do you have write access to the savannah CVS repository,
to do 'chmod +x,v', or do I need to get Jim
Meyering to do that?  It's annoying to have to do
'sh ./'.

Sorry I have no access.

Also, 'man find' is a bit misleading.  Under -L, it states "Using -L
causes the -lname and -ilname predicates always to return
false."  But in reality, -lname is correct in documenting that "If
the -L option or the -follow option is in effect, this test returns
false unless the symbolic link is broken."  Hence a very easy
way to find and nuke leftover broken symlinks.

That's a documentation bug.
