    sys-cluster/ceph: Revbumps, force older rocksdb (bug #764221)

That was >2 years ago. Is it still accurate? Is upstream aware? Is there a bug we can track?

Upper bound version limits are bad when there is no bug to check with. Please note that limiting dependencies to a maximum version is merely a workaround, not a bugfix.

Upstream is still bundling rocksdb-6.15.5, I don't have any way to test rocksdb-7 (the problem is a runtime crash when the OSD daemon is started in a cluster, I don't have any cluster that I can test this right now).

Reef claims to support RocksDB 7.9.2 upstream:

I have just tested the RocksDB 7.9.2 + Ceph 18.2.0 combination and it works.
To be specific the original bug #764221 prevented startup of the OSDs as far as I can tell, this is no longer the case.
The OSDs start up just fine.
Whether or not there are any mid- to long-term runtime errors I cannot tell just yet, however the cluster does seem happy with the new RocksDB version.

Short update; going from `<dev-libs/rocksdb-6.15:=` to `<dev-libs/rocksdb-7.10:=` in the ebuild has been running perfectly fine for me for over two weeks now:
