Hello *,

For the following HP devices a small patch was necessary, and I want to
ask how to patch, because I have not found any reference to a repository
or instruction...

rancid just ran a few times, so I still have to keep an eye on that, if
there are any other differences, but so far everything looks good...

In addition, I want to confirm that Dell PowerConnect 7048 works, too,
with the type "smc" and Dell Force10 with "force10". But, same story, I
have to keep a eye on them.
