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 (2.0.4-8ubuntu1.16.04.4) xenial; urgency=medium
* Write DNS domain in place of DOMAINSEARCH if that wasn't provided by the
DHCP server. (LP: #1713747)

klibc (2.0.4-8ubuntu1.16.04.3) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/dhcp-one-socket-per-interface.patch: Use separate
sockets for DHCP from multiple interfaces.  Thanks to Jay Vosburgh
<jay.vosburgh@canonical.com>.  Closes LP: #1652348.

klibc (2.0.4-8ubuntu1.16.04.2) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/fix_broadcast_flag-bit.patch: the previous patch set the
wrong bit in the bootp flags field, instead of 0x800 it must be 0x8000.
(LP: #1624014)
2016-04-26 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <cyphermox@ubuntu.com>
klibc (2.0.4-8ubuntu1.16.04.1) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/broadcast_dhcp_send.patch: yiaddr should always be set to 0
(INADDR_ANY) when sending those messages we're sending as a DHCP client,
right thing since 2.0.4-8ubuntu1, this fixes DHCPREQUEST. (LP: #1327412)
2016-03-18 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <mathieu-tl@ubuntu.com>
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)
2016-02-10 - Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>
klibc (2.0.4-8) unstable; urgency=medium
* run-init: Update documentation comment to cover -n option
* Add initramfs-tools hook script, in preparation for dropping it from
the initramfs-tools-core package
2016-01-18 - Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>
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
* Drop "Use static tools on ppc64", as shared builds appear to work now
* run-init: Add dry-run mode
2016-01-05 - Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>
klibc (2.0.4-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Revert "syscalls: Use direct socket syscalls on i386" (Closes: #809927)
* syscalls: Override detection of direct socket syscalls on i386, m68k, s390
2016-01-04 - Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>
klibc (2.0.4-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* syscalls: Use direct socket syscalls on i386 (Closes: 809423).
This requires Linux 4.3.
2015-09-19 - Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>
klibc (2.0.4-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix another issue that prevents a reproducible build:
- Use dh_lintian-overrides instead of direct installation
