As discussed on the dev mailing list, a path for LindenMesh
The changes are:
1) Doesn't crash when trying to load the lod 1 mesh for eyes.
2) Can decode the "packed" skinweights.
3) Has xmldoc tags for nearly everything.
Besides the path, there really should be an "avatar_skeleton.xml" file in the "openmetaverse_data", but I didn't want to simply add it to the patch, since I'm not familiar with your policies for included data files.
The version I'm supplying is from the Linden Viewer, and - as per Linden Labs - licensed under CCSA
The patch should apply cleanly when ignoring whitespace and space changes
