of course.  i'm not unreasonably asking where "where's the patch?", just
do we still NEED it  .... or is it 'in there'?

which, i'm still fuzzy on ...

if I plan to upgrade to 9.9.3, and want the 'same level of
functionality' (wrt RPZ & RLL) I've had with 9.9.2-P2 + the combined
patch referenced above, do I need to (eventually) patch 9.9.3 ?  or,
moving forward, are the patches only for new/additionally functionality
beyond what's already been integrated/implemented in 9.9.3?

just for context:

i'm trying to better understand 9.9.3's requirements & behavior to
troubleshoot my 1st experience with it ... a 9.9.3 build from source
went without a hitch, but *launching* it logs just a couple of RPZ zone
errors and an almost immediate "BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for ...
seconds" error that kills any further logging, and prevents me from even
s/w rebooting the box, requiring a hardware power toggle.

drop back to a 9.9.2-P2+patch build/install/launch gets me back to a
perfectly working state.
