libnss-cache (0.10.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Speeds up the name / uid / gid lookup in the nss-cache library.
* don't search groups if the provided buffer is small enough that the
chance of succeeding is small
* create simple index structure with uniformly sized entries and
mmap/bsearch as a replacement for a heuristic binary search
* if the entry was not found in the index, do not fall back to linear
search; still fall back if the entry was outdated, not accessible or
if a value was not found at the expected offset
* replace strcoll with strcmp for checking equality of the index, as
the index is built based on a simple string sort
