libaio (0.3.110-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
- Refresh patches.
* Link against -lc and -Wl,--as-needed so that we pull the required
fortified functions from the internal libc_nonshared.a, but do not link
against the shared library because we do not use any of its symbols.
(Closes: #764509)
* Switch debian/copyright to machine-readable format 1.0.
* Now using Standards-Version 3.9.6 (no changes needed).
* Switch to debhelper compatibility level 9.
* Fix mips/mipsel syscall wrappers to return correct error values.
Thanks to Jurica Stanojkovic <>.
* Add mips64 support. Reported by Jeremy Fitzhardinge <>.

* Fix FTBFS with newer gcc 4.6: (Closes: #638848)
- Do not build the test-suite with -Werror.
- Use unused waitpid() return code variables to assert valid values.
* Make shared library packages multiarch:
- Build-Depend on debhelper 8.1.3.
- Add misc:Pre-Depends substvar to Pre-Depends field in libaio1.
- Add “Multi-Arch: same” field to libaio1 and libaio1-dbg.
- Change paths from lib/ to lib/* in install and lintian-override files.
- Define DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH and use it to set libdir and libdevdir.

libaio (0.3.109-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.

* Switch to source format “3.0 (quilt)”:

- Remove patch and unpatch targets from debian/rules.

* Update watch file to point to the new upstream URL at
* Now using Standards-Version 3.9.1 (no changes needed).
* Add missing ${misc:Depends} to eveyr package Depends fields.
* Switch Architecture field list to just linux-any, and although the
code will not automatically support new Linux architectures, as it
will miss the syscall-<arch>.h header support among others, it just
needs to be ported, and this way it's easier to spot. This implicitly
adds amrhf support. (Closes: #596996)
* Add a Homepage field. (Closes: #566338)
