I apply the following to the Debian builds:

    - [135e196b] Create missing root directory when ORPH_ATTACH
    - [190ef2cb] volmonitor keep vtrans lock
    - [812dcc2c] Increase the maximum number of sysnames
    - [a123d4ab] Print rxdebug statistics as unsigned values
    - [4ca7b6fc] Remove lih_r
    - [f3899ac3] Allow GetSomeSpace_r to select an optimal host
    - [94a43966] h_TossStuff_r: check held-ness after lock
    - [b78eeb0c] h_TossStuff_r: make sure host does not go away
    - [0583af32] volmonitor copy link before calling free
    - [eb799d07] Move non-executable stack assembly code to end of file

Not all of these are particularly important, but they shouldn't hurt.
