Please sync sl-modem 2.9.11~20080817-1 (multiverse) from Debian unstable
Changelog since last sync from Debian 2.9.9d+e-pre2-5:
sl-modem (2.9.11~20080817-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release. (Closes: #354908, #489289, #457637, LP: #144090, #269855)
* Adopting sl-modem. (Closes: #471888)
* Removed the following patches since they are applied upstream:
+ patch to define URB_ASYNC_UNLINK if not set
+ patch that adds alternative MODULE_PARM function (module_param)
+ patch removing the inclusion of config.h
+ patch making a biarch build with lib32 package versions
+ patches fixing buils with kernel versions 2.6.16, 2.6.18 and 2.6.26
* Remove cmd.patch and pcireg.patch as they are applied upstream.
* Used quilt patch system.
+ Moved slmodem-class-simple-to-class-meins.diff to debian/patches/
+ 01_Makefile.diff: Makefile cleanup to not loose the user-specified
kernel version string.
+ modem_group.diff: set the default device group to "dialout".
+ 02_dial_string_size.diff: enlarge dial string buffer to 128 bytes
+ 03_Makefile_188.8.131.52.diff: workaround in drivers/Makefile for a kernel
2.4 check accidentialy matching 184.108.40.206.
+ 05_st7554_license.diff: changed the MODULE_LICENSE string to
"Dual BSD/GPL" since the license is actually a BSD license clone.
+ 06_slmodem-class-simple-to-class-meins.diff: patch for
+ 08_ungrab_winmodem.diff: helper module to tell the kernel to keep away
from unsupported PCI id numbers.
+ 10_drop_privileges.diff: slmodemd privilege dropping patch.
+ 11_logfile.diff: place debug log in /var/log/slmodem.log.
+ kernel-ver.diff: workaround for pre-2.6.18 kernels.
+ README.diff: Dropped the TROUBLESHOOTING section from README and adapted
the feedback section, mentioned the transfer of the modem business to
+ debug_level.diff: debug log file is not for end users. Users shall use
* Added fortify_source.diff patch to fix FTBFS with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2
* Synch'ed ungrab-winmodem.c from
* Remove debian/control.backup* as I don't see any use for them.
* Update Standards-Version to 3.8.0.
* Added watch file.
* debian/rules: slusb support ends at 2.6.24, hence add a check for kernel
sublevel, to prevent the attempt to install non-existing slusb.ko. Thanks
to Maurizio Avogadro for the suggestion.
* Translation updates: Swedish, German, Basque, French, Italian, Czech,
Portuguese, Finnish, Japanese and Russian (Closes: #501038, #501043,
#501065, #501102, #501108, #501213, #501225, #501701, #501632, #501593).
* New translation: Arabic (Closes: #501196).
* debian/control: Added Maurizio Avogadro to Uploaders field.
* debian/sl-modem-daemon.init: changes from Ubuntu
+ sl-modem-daemon initscript waits for aplay (from alsa-utils) to report
the card, as it appears in /proc/asound/cards before it is actually
available to slmodemd. This extra check defeats this race.
+ Remove hard and soft ulimits for locked-in-core memory. This daemon
unfortunately needs quite a bit of memory and it needs to be in core
because it's doing the real-time modem DSP. This deals with LP: #144468
and probably other bugs too.
* debian/rules: removed code to append extra lines to modprobe.d file, since
they are statically appended in debian/sl-modem-daemon.modutils.
* The init script can now modprobe even if the slamr module has been
* Modified 11_logfile.diff: Fixed the log path as the slmodemd daemon runs
as unprivileged user and didn't have write permissions on /var/log.
* Added class_device.diff patch: since 2.6.25 class_device_add() and
class_device_destroy() has been renamed, modified st7554.c accordingly.
* Removed obsolete /etc/modutils file.
* Small enhancements to the modprobe.d file:
+ verify device permissions on module install
+ modprobe cleans /dev on module remove
* Added some troubleshooting info to README.Debian.
