util-linux (2.20.1-5.1ubuntu1) quantal-proposed; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes:
    - Install custom blkid.conf to use /dev/.blkid.tab since we don't
      expect device names to survive a reboot
    - Build-depend on gettext:any for cross-building support.
    - Mark libmount1 Multi-Arch: same.
    - Replace hwclock udev rule with an Upstart job.
    - Since upstart is required in Ubuntu, the hwclock.sh init script is not
      called on startup.
    - Drop depends on initscripts for the above.
    - Mention mountall(8) in fstab(5) manpages, along with its special
    - For the case where mount is called with a directory to mount, look
      that directory up in mountall's /lib/init/fstab if we couldn't find
      it mentioned anywhere else.  This means "mount /proc", "mount /sys",
      etc. work.
    - mount.8 points to the cifs-utils package, not the obsolete smbfs one. 
  * Dropped changes, included in Debian:
    - Build for multiarch.
    - Add pre-depends on multiarch-support.
    - Use canonicalize_spec in getmntdevbackward. proc should not be
      interpreted as a non-canonical-path.
    - term-utils/agetty.c: allow getty to work on /dev/pts/N
    - Fix up the .pc.in files to know about libexecdir, so our substitutions
      don't leave us with unusable pkg-config files.
    - configure.ac: don't try to be clever about extracting a path name from
      $libdir to append to /usr in a way that's not overridable; instead,
      reuse the built-in configurable libexecdir.
    - Remove the hwclockfirst.sh init script.
  * Do not replace /etc/default/rcS with /etc/adjtime.  This has already
    been analyzed carefully in Ubuntu, and /etc/adjtime is not beneficial
    at all.

util-linux (2.20.1-5.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * agetty: don't use log_err() for non-fatal errors
  * agetty: Eliminate another log_err() call. Closes: #675569
  * Fix watch file

util-linux (2.20.1-5) unstable; urgency=low

  [Petr Uzel]

  * sfdisk: fix calculation due to type mismatch (ix86)  Closes: #670127

  [Eduard Bloch]

  * Make sure we have non-null mount options.  Closes: #632118

  [Francesco Del Degan]

  * tries to umount /proc when told to umount /some/dir/proc without an
    /etc/mtab entry.  Closes: #634107

  [Pino Toscano]

  * Deliver {c,}fdisk-udeb on hurd.  Closes: #672551

  [Roger Leigh]

  * Improve handling of the hardware clock
    - Remove redundant hwclockfirst.sh and hwclock.sh.  The reason for
      this redundant script existing (/etc/localtime not being present
      until after /usr was mounted AFAICT) no longer exists.  The
      hwclock script has been adjusted to run before checkroot.
      Closes: #660365
    - Migrate existing
      UTC= setting in /etc/default/rcS to UTC/LOCAL in /etc/adjtime.
      This removes needless duplication of the setting, and prevents the
      behaviour of hwclock being overridden, and its configuration
      overwritten every shutdown.  Closes: #554345
    - The hwclock init scripts now use /etc/adjtime instead of the
      --utc and --localtime options (based on the UTC setting).
    - Add /etc/default/hwclock and hwclock(5) which permit
      configuration without editing the initscript, and also document
      all the undocumented variables used by the scripts.
      Closes: #481357, #659654
    - The udev hwclock-set script runs hwclock --tzset unconditionally
      in all cases (it's a no-op for UTC).
    - The user running "hwclock --systohc (--utc|--localtime)" is now
      handled correctly.  The clock state is recorded in /etc/adjtime
      and correctly handled on system restart.  This means the UTC
      setting in /etc/default/rcS doesn't create problems by requiring
      two separate changes (changing the UTC setting and running
      hwclock) to do the same thing.
    - Comment out the now-obsolete UTC= setting in /etc/default/rcS,
      with a reference to /etc/adjtime and hwclock(8).
    - systemd uses /etc/adjtime as for hwclock to store the hardware
      clock UTC/LOCAL configuration.  This change means there's a
      single place to store the hardware clock configuration for all
      init systems.
