That would be 5.1mm where the mm is my Multiple Memc support and A24
mapping changes in the BSP.

The general deal with the BSPs is that they are almost useless out of
the box and that some local mods to deal with the A32 and A24
spaces are required for some of the EPICS drivers, like the NI1014 and
HiDEOS interfaces.  At APS we also up the file descriptor limit and
play some games with the current working directory path before the
startup file is executed.

I have JUST installed 5.2 here are am embarking on merging the BSP mods
into the new release.  (Might have done it earlier if WRS hadn't sent
us an HP distribution instead of the SUN one... and I hear that we were
not the only site that this happened to.)
