It means the original fix was applied to CURRENT (what is also known as HEAD), and then "backported" to RELENG_7 (what you would call FreeBSD 7.x-STABLE) on 2008/03/20. "MFC" stands for "Merge From CURRENT". You can confirm this by looking at cvsweb for the file in question: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/dev/usb/ums.c The change for HEAD/CURRENT was made in Revision 1.98 (date = Mar 12) The MFC to RELENG_7 was made in Revision 188.8.131.52 (date = Mar 20) If you csup your src tree (use /usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile) the patched code will be downloaded and used. You'll have to rebuild world to get the changes, of course. See the FreeBSD Handbook for doing a csup as well as for rebuilding world. -- | Jeremy Chadwick jdc at parodius.com | | Parodius Networking http://www.parodius.com/ | | UNIX Systems Administrator Mountain View, CA, USA | | Making life hard for others since 1977.
