Update Information:

Update to 2.6.0, fix segfault bug:    * controller.c: Fix use after free in
controller  The controller will use its dynamically allocated data after it  got
free() in error path. What we see in syslog is:    Jun 30 10:26:38 consrv3
ser2net[3073]: read error for  controller port: Connection reset by peer  Jun 30
10:26:39 consrv3 ser2net[3073]: The tcp write for  controller had error: Bad
file descriptor    The first error is "legal" because the destination decided to
close its socket a little earlier than expected. The seconderror is already bad
because it tries to use an already deallocated fd. Later we segfault.
