Desc:  ser won't run on linux kernels <2.4  (fails with EINVAL when
      intializing the shared memory)
BugId:  n/a
Ser version: 0.8.8, 0.8.9, 0.8.10 
Workaround: Upgrade to a 2.4.* kernel (older kernels don't support shared 
            mmaping of /dev/zero ) or recompile ser with SYSV shm instead of
            mmap (remove -DSHM_MMAP from Makefile.defs)
CVS status: n/a
