> Changes since 1.5.2-1:

- Fix possible crash in mmap if file size is less than requested map
  length.  (Corinna Vinschen)

- Add a bunch of convenient macros to sys/params.h.  (Nicholas Wourms)

And this one makes us errno compatible to Linux.  Instead of EACCES,
we now get EIO error messages in the mailing list if somebody tries
to read a tape with wrong blockcount ;-)

- Return more accurate errnos when reading/writing raw disk and tape
  devices.  (Corinna Vinschen)
