[parisc-linux] WARNING: installing glibc-2.2.3-6 breaks ssh

Ifyou install glibc-2.2.3-6, sshd will break.  Here's why:

168   setrlimit(RLIMIT_STACK, {rlim_cur=8192*1024, rlim_max=RLIM_INFINITY}) = 0 

glibc-2.2.3- had a bug in that it'd set the max limit to INF/2
and everything would work fine.  This needs to be fixed in the kernel
and hopefully I'll get that done by the end of today.
