OK, I have applied part of this patch.  I skipped the changes to
Makefile.shlib, and the hack to disable flock in pqcomm.c.  By the time
this code is released in 7.1, hopefully the Linux kernel will be fixed.

The Makefile.shlib changes will have to be discussed with other Linux
developers so we are sure it will work on all platforms.

I am attaching the part of the patch that I applied.
