Kernel patched

We've patched and installed a new kernel, to protect against the sendfile call exploit mentioned in "FreeBSD Security Advisory FreeBSD-SA-05:02.sendfile".

"... The sendfile(2) system call allows a server application (such as an HTTP or FTP server) to transmit the contents of a file over a network connection without first copying it to application memory. High performance servers such as Apache and ftpd use sendfile."
