With the current distro that now includes MCCP, hotboot will cause a crash.

The problem is that in hotboot_recover d->mccp is not created, and compressStart references it.

To fix, locate:
      CREATE( d, DESCRIPTOR_DATA, 1 );

      d->next = NULL;
      d->descriptor = desc;
      d->connected = CON_GET_NAME;
      d->outsize = 2000;
      d->idle = 0;
      d->lines = 0;
      d->scrlen = 24;
      d->newstate = 0;
      d->prevcolor = 0x08;

Change to:
      CREATE( d, DESCRIPTOR_DATA, 1 );
      CREATE( d->mccp, MCCP, 1 );
      d->next = NULL;
      d->descriptor = desc;
      d->connected = CON_GET_NAME;
      d->outsize = 2000;
      d->idle = 0;
      d->lines = 0;
      d->scrlen = 24;
      d->newstate = 0;
      d->prevcolor = 0x08;


That should fix the hotboot crashing.

Pretty minor line, easy to miss. I actually came across it when I was changing the instructions to add MCCP for SWR, I just assumed since no one had reported it that it was handled else where.
