glibc (2.29-0ubuntu1) disco; urgency=medium
* Merge with current 2.29 from Debian experimental git, remaining changes:
- Enable libc6{,-dev}-armel on armhf and libc6{-dev}-armhf on armel.
- Heavily mangle the way we do service restarting on major upgrades.
- Build i386 variants as -march=i686, build amd64 with -O3, and build
ppc64 variants (both 64-bit and 32-bit) with -O3 -fno-tree-vectorize.
- Build generic i386 flavour with -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs for Xen.
- Drop the libc6-xen flavour, as the above change covers Xen's needs.
- Enable systemtap support, which is currently disabled in Debian.
- Don't build libc-l10n, its contents get stripped for language-packs.
- Drop libc-bin manpages Recommends to Suggests to keep it in standard.
- Revert dropping the ldconfig wrapper, xenial still has a lot of
packages that don't ship a trigger but instead call in postinst.
- Use DH_COMPAT=8 for dh_strip to fix debug sections for valgrind.
- Mangle locales package to support Ubuntu language packs seamlessly.
- Let tst-ttyname fail on armhf and armel, as it currently fails in lxc.
* debian/patches/ubuntu/submitted-no-sprintf-pre-truncate.diff: Adjust to
new upstream code, and mangle the upstream tests to expect our behaviour.
* debian/{script.in/nsscheck.sh,debhelper.in/libc.*inst}: Tidy up NSS_CHECK
code, fixing handling for GDM and removing file-rc cruft from yesteryear.
