Patch to add v8.4.0 to portage


app-admin/rsyslog-8.4.0 is now ready for the tree, please see the attached patch.

As always you can also grab the changes from my overlay:

Notable changes between v7.6.3-r1 and v8.4.0:

- sm_cust_bindcdr module dropped. Shouldn't affect any Gentoo user at all, see for more details.

- jemalloc USE flag added

Patch to add v8.4.0 to portage

Here's an updated patch with the following changes:

- Added upstream's version of rsyslog-imuxsock-shrink.patch, vapier silently added (and dropped) without notifying us

- Added two upstream patches to allow building on platforms without atomic instructions

Why does 8.4.0 still not in portage tree?
This version is already stable:

Hello, Thomas D, I can help bumping this ebuild (@proxy-maint in the CCed list)

One thing, I'd suggest to re-use files from ${FILESDIR}/7-stable directory:

reason is that sharing same files between ebuilds will keeps the portage tree slim, better for maintenance..

from rsyslog-8.4.0

you define "AUTOTOOLS_AUTORECONF=1" but override the src_prepare() from autotools-utils.eclass.
instead, you can simply define PATCHES=( ), please take a look at autotools-utils.eclass.

rsyslog was bumped to v8.4.1 due to CVE-2014-3634, see bug 524058.
