I remember reviewing and applying something similar before 4.5.55 release.
I don't see anything in this patch that wasn't addressed in some form.
Current stable version is 4.6.0.  I'm surprised that you are still using
version 4.5.51, which is more than 3 years old.

What would you do with a patch for NetBSD 1.4 kernel if I sent it to you

If you mistrust development that happened after 4.5.51, then I'll
appreciate if you explain the reasons.  Stability and portability has been
the focus of the recent releases.  Version 4.6.0 was tested by Valgrind
for memory errors, and several of them have been found and fixed.  This
tool didn't even exist when 4.5.51 was released.

If you believe in rumors that the new mc requires GNOME 2 and XFree86 as
some posters here implied, please adjust your reality :-)
