Sorry, I've been a little overwhelmed recently.  Trying to get 1.1.1 out and 
worry about everything else afterwards.  (I should have gotten it out a 
couple _weeks_ ago...)

Okay, let's take a look...

Messing with fdisk is deferred until 1.1.2, and I'd prefer the rewrite 

The free patch looks good, but huge and complicated.  Let's see...  With any 
change this big there's a few questionable bits (the ifupdown_main() bits, 
for example), but in general it looks ok.  Applied.

The make.patch one didn't get applied because the .o and .s bits at the end 
belong in Rules.mak.  (What are they for, anyway?)

Rooting around in my back email I'm mfailing to come up with descriptions for 
these patches right now.  (I mentioned I have a cold?)  Could you do a brief 
descrption of what each set (wget, top, and hdparm) tries to accomplish?

Never bet against the cheap plastic solution.
