2015-03-06 - Eugene Shatokhin <> 20-1
+ Revision: 798c0c3
- Updated to version 20 + removed obsolete stuff
- 1. Most significant changes in version 20 since version 17:
- Bug fixes:
- - Handle bogus values from ELF, making sure they don't overflow while
- parsing the file.
- - Fix leak in depmod when -b flag is passed multiple times.
- - Fix race between loading modules and checking if it's loaded in the
- kernel.
- - Fix missing CLOEXEC in library.
- - Fix error message while opening kmod's index.
- - Fix leaks in error paths.
- - Fix use-after-free in hash implementation causing a wrong index to be
- generated by depmod with out-of-tree modules.
- New features:
- - Calling depmod with modules creating a dependency loop will now make
- depmod return an error and not update the indexes.
- - Only the modules listed in modules.builtin index are now considered as
- builtin.
- 2. Added a couple of changes from cooker:
- - Blacklisting 'udlfb' by default: udl module should be used for
- DisplayLink devices instead.
- - Adding dependencies between *hci_hcd to avoid kernel warnings.
- 3. Cleaned up, removed some obsolete stuff.
