49. By Colin Watson

[initramfs] Enable df, for casper (LP: #424731).

48. By Colin Watson

* [initramfs] Enable CONFIG_FEATURE_USE_TERMIOS (LP: #268306).
* [initramfs] Enable du, for casper (LP: #424731).

47. By Colin Watson

[initramfs] Enable gunzip and gzip (LP: #392218). (gzip is overkill in
most respects, but is needed to make the 'gzip' command visible for the
benefit of kbd.)

46. By Colin Watson

printf-errors.patch (update): Set errno to zero on entry to print_direc,
as otherwise %c and %s return undefined exit codes.

45. By Colin Watson

[deb, initramfs, static] Enable fractional sleep (thanks, Jean-Louis
Dupond; LP: #391299).

44. By Colin Watson

[initramfs] Link dynamically rather than statically. We always have
glibc in the initramfs these days.

43. By Colin Watson

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - [udeb] Enable chvt, dd conv=notrunc, getopt (and -l), killall,
    losetup, mktemp, NFS mount, od, ping, stat, and remote syslog.
  - [deb] Enable mdev.
  - Enable 'mount -f' and mount helpers for all targets.
  - Add busybox-initramfs.
  - mkswap-uuid.patch: Set UUIDs on swap areas.
  - test-bin.patch: Move test and friends to /bin.
  - mount-helper-fixes.patch: Add proper support for mount -i (don't use
    external mount helper), and trivial support for umount -i although
    busybox umount doesn't support external helpers yet. Fix handling of
    mount -f and -n.
  - getopt-long-only.patch: Allow 'getopt -l' to be enabled independently
    of the whole of CONFIG_GETOPT_LONG, so that it can be enabled more
  - printf-errors.patch: Exit non-zero on conversion errors.
* procps-kernel-threads.patch: Drop. We haven't needed this since we
  rewrote casper as an initramfs-tools module anyway, and the bit of this
  patch that actually does anything was dropped in 1:1.01-4ubuntu1 so we
  clearly don't need the rest of it!
* [initramfs] Include wc for the benefit of live-initramfs (LP: #387944).

42. By Colin Watson

no-byte-swap-compressed-help.patch: Backport r23074 from upstream to fix
segfaults on big-endian machines (spotted by Wartan Hachaturow).

41. By Colin Watson

[udeb] Enable FEATURE_DD_IBS_OBS, so that we can use conv=notrunc while
restoring swap UUIDs (LP: #336992).

40. By Colin Watson

printf-errors.patch: Print a more helpful error message and exit
non-zero on conversion errors (LP: #333349).
