Hi,

this is the last mail with the patches. I hope for some comments. It 
runs now three hours without crashes on sparc64 linux (debian). Tomorrow 
morning I know more ...

Hi,

I made finally some small fixes in decode.(c|h) and some more fixes in
spp_stream4.c. I removed SPARC_TWIDDLE from spp_stream4.c and changed
the code for alignment a little bit.

Can a more experienced snort developer verify the diffs please? I only
made some small hacks to fix the bus errors but of course I cannot say
that I know what I'm doing :)

Without the patch it is possible to crash snort on sparc with some
wellformed packets (even if stream4 is not activated).

Thanks Michael
