Status in “openafs” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released

Bug description:
Reading the 1.4.12 release notes at:


that list just one new feature and but on the other hand dozends of bug fixes
and considering that Lucid will be LTS it would be IMHO  a good thing to
have the following stuff fixes that are part of 1.4.12:

* Bugfixes:

All systems:

- Fixes to avoid issues cleaning up deleted hosts in the fileserver (126454)

- Fixes to avoid dropping writes due to server idle timeouts.

- Don't miss cache chunks of large files while truncating.

- Avoid null pointer dereference for unexpected volume names in volume

- Don't mark connections waiting for additional packet window availability

- Kerberos 5 utilities (klog.krb5, aklog) enable weak encryption support.

- Avoid a double-free of an Rx call structure during a client fetch error.

- Avoid losing hosts during address changes. (125215)

- Clients shouldn't trust Fetchdata replies for the size of returned data.

- fileserver will not hang when attempting to cleanup and dump core.

- salvager will not leave core files in random directories.

- avoid letting retransmit timer get to 0 seconds. 

- in event of dbserver contact failure, shut fileserver down cleanly.

- handle large partitions during check for needed disk space at
  client start.

- time out Rx connections if network unreachable error received.

- avoid dereferencing NULL pointer freeing Rx packets in receive. (125110)

- mark stack not executable in LWP. (125491)

- return a correct VolumeSync structure from Bulkstat RPCs in fileserver.

- client attempts to better free memory at shutdown.

- clear rx call queue safely. (125110)

- retry VLserver registration on failure in fileserver.

- update accessdate for volumes on access in fileserver.

- additional safety checks on vlserver operations to avoid
  database corruption.

- make ktc_curpag available on all builds. (125155)



- Handle kernel changes through 2.6.33.

- Fix oops in clear_inode due to missed locking. (125589)

- Better handle /afs mount failures.

- Clean up after failures creating our kernel kmem cache.

- Work around memory management issues with some kernels when configuring
  the buffer cache/bdi (126514)

- Rename compile_et to afs_compile_et to avoid RPM conflicts.

- Handle whole-file locks properly. (126561)

- Deal with kernel autoconf header renaming.

- Handle SELinux cache backing file labels better to avoid potential oops.

Anyone aware why we should not try to get a late sync done?  (or why it was
not done yet  ;)
