2746. By Andy Whitcroft on 2011-12-16

debian/udev.initramfs-bottom: increase the client side timeout to
better cope with potential timeout extension issues in udev. We very
much would prefer udev to time itself out and guarentee to have
completed than take action ourselves. Very worst case the timeout
may be doubled from the default of 60s so increase ours accordingly.
Note, we should only ever trip this timeout when we are already in
severe trouble. (LP: #818177)

2745. By Andy Whitcroft on 2011-12-16

avoid-exit-deadlock-for-timely-events: avoid deadlock when exiting
by continuing to handle events with timeliness requirements.
The timeliness requirement will be violated if we ignore them which
is highly undesirable. Also these events are typically dependant
events and may well block the events we are waiting on leading to
boot delays and uninitialised devices. (LP: #842560)

2744. By Andy Whitcroft on 2011-12-16

debian/udev.initramfs-bottom: ignore timeout errors from udevadm we
expect (and indeed requested) them in cirtain failure modes. If we
do not we will bail out early and not transfer /dev into /root which
is always fatal leading to unbootable machines. (LP: #818177)

2743. By Martin Pitt on 2011-11-15

releasing version 175-0ubuntu2

2742. By Martin Pitt on 2011-11-15

debian/udev.postinst: Use invoke-rc.d to restart udev instead of
"restart", to pick up new daemon path. (LP: #889226)

2741. By Martin Pitt on 2011-11-15

Partially revert r2735 and move the daemon back to /sbin/, to better
comply with FHS.

2740. By Martin Pitt on 2011-11-11

debian/udev.postinst: Ignore failures of "udevadm --convert-db". This
option does not exist any more in Ubuntu 11.10 and later, so for upgrades
from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS you need to reboot. This doesn't really hurt,
as there are already two dozen other reasons to reboot after upgrade.
(LP: #887892)

2739. By Martin Pitt on 2011-11-10

releasing version 175-0ubuntu1

2738. By Martin Pitt on 2011-11-10

revert r2733 again, still an issue

2737. By Martin Pitt on 2011-11-08

remove obsolete files
