I cannot vouch for the vsscanf patch as that is something from Ryan's

The etip patch is needed to get a correct etip.h header file. Therefore it's
probably not critical for Ch 5. But seeing as it is a bugfix that has been
incorporated upstream, it does no harm to leave it in for Ch 5. I s'pose it
depends how anal you want to be. I have no idea if/when/how often etip.h is
used and couldn't be bothered finding out.
