Many small bugs are fixed.  Most of the sentences in the changelog entry 
are separate fixes that are not related to the other changelog entries. 
 If it's needed, I can make more detailed explanation about each sentence.

My observation is that such cosmetic changes (like changing comments and 
memset/memcpy) are rejected by Hurd core developers when they are alone, 
so the only way to commit them is to merge them with more essential patch.
