Description Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2011-08-04 09:52:49 UTC
sys-fs/sysfsutils is broken and dead upstream.  Dependency on it needs to be
removed so we can remove it from the tree.

Reproducible: Always

Sysfs support for this library is optional. If enabled, libsysfs is used only in one place: systems/fbdev/fbdev.c, in a single (static) function: dfb_fbdev_get_pci_info, which only called from one place as well. If sysfs support is enabled, its gets the data that way (using libsysfs), and if not, it falls back to parsing /proc/bus/pci/devices

Done. Thanks!
