Subject: pnet: FTBFS on ARM

Severity: serious

Justification: no longer builds from source

Build fails on ARM with 
Error: Rn must not overlap other operands -- `swp r3,r4,[r3]'

The error is correct.  This is coming from a broken inline assembly
statement.  Patch below fixes it.

Subject: pnet has been removed from Debian, closing #394764
Date: Wed, 14 May 2008 11:25:31 -0400
Version: 0.7.4-1+rm

The pnet package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
