seems well, so I've updated the patch name and README accordingly:

I have seen good results in my initial testing by applying my
"cflowd-2-1-a9-djp.patch" to the "cflowd-2-1-b1" sources. I've only
done run-time testing with it for a whopping 5 minutes or so.

I have placed the older cflowd distributions in the "old" sub-dirs
under the directory where I distribute the patches:
However, because of the semaphore-related race condition fix that has
been much discussed in the cflowd list and that Daniel has integrated
in 2-1-b1, I suggest using 2-1-b1, and only fall back to older releases
if you find problems (with my patch, etc.).
If you have further information or questions please follow-up to either
or both of the mailing lists as appropriate.
