Get/set device parameters for Linux SATA/IDE drives.
Rrovides a command line interface to various kernel interfaces supported by
the Linux SATA/PATA/SAS "libata" subsystem and the older IDE driver subsystem.
Many newer (2008 and later) USB drive enclosures now also support "SAT"
(SCSI-ATA Command Translation) and therefore may also work with hdparm.

hdparm (9.43-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version
2012-10-09 - Michael Meskes <meskes@debian.org>
hdparm (9.42-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
* Allow udev rule to process large numbers of devices (closes: #675624)
* Changed hdparm-functions to allow links instead of devices in hdparm.conf.
* Taken from Ubuntu:
Set spindown policy back to -B128 instead of -B127. Too many drives
misbehave too badly with this setting, possibly leading to drive failure.
We should revisit this once we understand why people's drives are spinning
back *up* so frequently (closes: #684241)
