memtest86+ (5.01-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Build -O0 to workaround what is apparently a gcc 4.9 optimisation bug,
and use "static" the __in and __out macros to allow compilation to
proceed under this condition (as done in other distros, including
Mageia, closes: #753627): memtest86+-5.01-O0.patch.
* Fix PCI bus scanning on Nehalem architectures (patch from the Mageia
package): memtest86+-5.01-array-size.patch.

iso.  Closes: #591578.
