This package contains a collection of programs that are linked
against klibc. These duplicate some of the functionality of a
regular Linux toolset, but are typically much smaller than their
full-function counterparts.  They are intended for inclusion in
initramfs images and embedded systems.

klibc (2.0.4-8ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/broadcast_dhcp_send.patch: set the broadcast bit when
sending DHCPDISCOVER/DHCPREQUEST, as per RFC 2131; section 4.1. This
helps when there is more than one interface trying to do DHCP at the same
time. (LP: #1327412)

klibc (2.0.4-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Drop "revert upstream nuked insmod", as nothing needs it any more
* Drop "Use static tools on IA64", as this architecture is dead
