segfault printing in slackware64-current

A segfault may occur while printing with CUPS if foomatic-rip is in your filter chain. the version of foomatic-rip in cups-filters-1.21.0 has a heap management error in options processing, and the resulting corruption may corrupt variables or crash the foomatic-rip filter ("filter failed" error). Upstream (immediately) fixed the error in version 1.21.1, but Slackware has not updated the package yet. Here is a patch to 1.12.0 until then:
