Avoid SEGV if file2str should read zero bytes. This is a backport of
526bc5df from upstream. When utility buffers were introduced for file2str
read requests, a subtle change was inadvertently introduced such that a
read of zero no longer returns a -1 value. This returns to the behavior to
returning -1 on zero byte reads. (LP: #1242746)

ignore_eaccess.patch: If we get eaccess when opening a sysctl file for
writing, don't error out. Otherwise package upgrades can fail, especially
in containers. (LP: #1157643)

Backport of a45dace4 and 95d01362 in order to enable dynamically
allocated buffers in file2str. This fixes a number of seg fault problems
including the one related to large numbers of groups per user.

debian/sysctl.d/10-magic-sysrq.conf: adjust to 176 by default, retaining
support for the critical sync, remount, reboot functions. SysRq+E and
SysRq+I are still disabled, which unfortunately means SysRq by default
cannot be used to kill a broken X server; but the only way to enable
these would be to re-enable SysRq+F, which is one of the options that's
problematic security-wise. LP: #1025467

62. By Marc Deslauriers on 2012-06-21

Add debian/sysctl.d/10-magic-sysrq.conf: disable the magic sysrq key
by default, since it's not needed for the average system, and exposes
security issues such as memory disclosure and killing arbitrary
processes including the screen lock. (LP: #194676)
