Description Ulenrich 2013-10-05 23:08:30 UTC
Carefully read the NEWS:
- Bug fixes:
    - Fix usage of readdir_r()
- New features:
    - Remove option from libkmod to allow waiting on module removal if
      the module is being used. It's dangerous since it can block the
      caller indefinitely.
REMOVAL of an OPTION! Breakage?
    - Improve compatibility with musl libc
    - Add fallback implementation for compilers without _Static_assert(),
      e.g. gcc < 4.6
    - Minor optimizations to the hash table
    - Make depmod warn if a module has incorrect devname specification
This last feature is the most interesting if the user has problems?

Reproducible: Always

People who might have used this now missing Option to wait for a device related action to complete before doing their next thing scriptingly 

will fail :(
