dpkg ( lucid-proposed; urgency=low

  * Cherry-pick fixes for sync() behaviour in dpkg (LP: #624877):
    - Disable by default usage of synchronous sync(2), as it causes undesired
      I/O on unrelated file systems. Closes: #588339, #595927, #600075
    - On Linux use sync_file_range() to initiate asynchronous writeback
      of just unpacked files. Suggested by Ted Ts'o <tytso at mit.edu>.
      Thanks to Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder at gmail.com>. Closes: #605009
