This ECO kit provides a new version of the MultiNet kernel,
MULTINET.EXE, for Multinet V4.4 Rev A. This kernel includes the
following changes:

KERNEL-UPDATE-130_A044 - ECO Rank 1
-----------------------------------
- Correct errors in releasing the cluster IP alias address that could
lead to a system crash (D/E 8008).

----------------------------------------
This kit also includes the following changes from previous ECO kits:

KERNEL-UPDATE-120_A044 - ECO Rank 2
-----------------------------------
- Correct a potential crash introduced in KERNEL-UPDATE-100_A044
(D/E 9880).

KERNEL-UPDATE-110_A044 - ECO Rank 3
-----------------------------------
- Allow read and write attention asts to be canceled from the
BG device. (D/E 9860)

KERNEL-UPDATE-100_A044 - ECO Rank 3
-----------------------------------
- Correct an error in keeping track of the IP Cluster alias that
prevented the FTP server from binding to the address, and hence FTP
was not able to do directories or data transfers in passive mode.
(DE 9750)

- The kernel keeps a list of pending data transactions to be sent
down to the interface. If that queue gets too large, the kernel
will drop a packet and retransmit it after a calculated retransmit
timer has expired. That queue has been lengthened to help prevent
an unnecessary dependence on retransmissions in high activity times.
(D/E 9626)

KERNEL-UPDATE-090_A044 - ECO Rank 0 - Mandatory for all 4.4 systems
-----------------------------------
- A problem where the kernel could begin looping excessively at
elevated IPL has been corrected. Improvements have been made
to the earlier change. (D/E 9100)

KERNEL-UPDATE-080_A044 - ECO Rank 3
-----------------------------------
- TCP_KEEPINIT and TCP_KEEPCNT options added (D/E 7004)

Note: To use these options from the DEC C setsockopt() function
and/or the DEC C RTL, you must also install eco kit
UCX_LIBRARY_EMULATION-050_A044 or later.

KERNEL-UPDATE-070_A044 - ECO Rank 0 - Mandatory for all 4.4 systems
-----------------------------------
- A problem where the kernel could begin looping excessively at
elevated IPL has been corrected. (D/E 9100)

KERNEL-UPDATE-060_A044 - ECO Rank 3
-----------------------------------
- Support for ioctl calls used by Java 1.4.0 on VMS V7 AXP added.
(DE 8983)

KERNEL-UPDATE-050_A044 - ECO Rank 3
-----------------------------------
- When using Paired Network Interface support, proxy arp and cluster
alias addresses would not fail over if a problem was detected with
the interface handling the proxy arp or cluster alias addresses.
This has been corrected (D/E 8493)

KERNEL-UPDATE-040_A044 - ECO Rank 1
-----------------------------------
- A VAX SMP synchronization issue that had the potential to crash
systems where the somaxconn kernel variable has been changed has
been corrected.
This problem was introduced in KERNEL-UPDATE-010_A044 (D/E 8332)

KERNEL-UPDATE-030_A044 - ECO Rank 1
-----------------------------------
- An SMP synchronization issue that had the potential to crash systems
using SNMPD has been corrected. (D/E 8165)

KERNEL-UPDATE-021_A044 - ECO Rank 3
-----------------------------------
- Significant performance enhancements were made to the methods used
to abort pending selects. These performance enhancements are most
notable when using Oracle.
- Fix defect where multicast datagrams might not be delivered to
applications if pseudo-devices are in use (D/E 7987)

KERNEL-UPDATE-010_A044 - ECO Rank 0 for SMP machines
-----------------------------------
- An SMP synchronization issue that had the potential to crash systems
with a lot of interactive telnet processes has been corrected.
(D/E 7473, 7565, Rank 0)

KERNEL-UPDATE-020_A044 and later REQUIRES that you be running ucxdriver
