Applied the patch but ran into one "gotcha". The server wasn't
starting up properly after applyign the patch. I tried running the
binary in the foreground and turns out it was complaining about not
being able to find /dev/poll in the chroot environment.
# cd /var/named/dev
# mknod poll c 138 0
# chmod 666 poll
And everything worked fine. I'm not sure if Sun built things
differently or there is a new requirement on this /dev/poll file.
Regardless all seems to be working OK now.
