vpb-driver (4.2.61-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Use --sort=name, if available, when creating the kernel source tarball.
For reproducibility we want the files in it deterministically ordered.

vpb-driver (4.2.60-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Minor tweaks for the linux 4.15 kernel.
* Replace pow10() with exp10(), they are equivalent, except for the bit where
exp10 got standardised in TS 18661-4:2015 and glibc 2.27 removed pow10.
Closes: #890671
* Pass -pthread using the correct modern idiom when building libtoneg.
Using -lpthread there is wrong with modern toolchains, and breaks cross
builds when make expands it to a full path for the build arch. #866720
Closes: #866720
* Sanitise the umask and mtime of the kernel source tarball, this should let
this package be build reproducibly now.

vpb-driver (4.2.59-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Conflict/Replace libvpb0.  Closes: #794587
* This is really just a kludge-around for the fact that we have unversioned
files installed in the runtime library package, which ordinarily would be
a Terribly Wrong thing to do, but this code is stable and had a strong
guarantee that the ABI was never going to be broken and it would never
need a transition, so for several reasons that was the least worst option
for nearly 10 years now.  Until gcc-5 broke that promise on us ...
In this case, we can probably still quite reasonably get away with just
forcing the old package off the system when it is upgraded, since there is
a fairly natural limit to how many applications you can have controlling
your phone lines on a system, and no real user is likely to actually need
the old and new packages to be co-installable.  Either they'll update to
the new one, or they won't.  There's no prolonged transition where things
they might need could still be using the old one.  It's still technically
wrong though, so kids don't try this at home, but unless gcc starts to
make a habit of this, it's probably the least disruptive change we can
impose on users to cope with that transition, and hopefully something we
won't need to deal with again for at least another ten years.  If we do,
then we'll reassess where the pros and cons really lay for making more
intrusive changes to support things that "should have never happened".

vpb-driver (4.2.59-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Updates for gcc-5.  Closes: #791309
* It makes some changes to libstdc++ which break ABI for us in a few places,
mostly in symbols using std::basic_string or std::list, so we're going to
bump the SONAME for this release, even though there is no incompatible
change to the libvpb source itself.  In theory we could just rename the
library package - but that would still leave people with out of distro
applications screwed if they upgrade to the new package without rebuilding
their own applications.  This way they'll at least fail loudly and early.

vpb-driver (4.2.58-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Backport the tweak to OpenPCI interrupt handling.
* Don't build with -O3 anymore, most of this code doesn't need it,
and gcc 4.9 appears to do some fun things if we try.
2013-08-11 - Ron Lee <ron@debian.org>
vpb-driver (4.2.57-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Updates for kernel 3.10, Closes: #719136
Disabling hotplug is no longer an option.
The proc API has changed, create_proc_{,read_}entry no longer exist.
The asm/system.h header has been disintegrated.
2013-04-12 - Ron Lee <ron@debian.org>
vpb-driver (4.2.56-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Tweak the OpenPCI ring validation parameters.
2012-05-09 - Ron Lee <ron@debian.org>
vpb-driver (4.2.55-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Update for gcc-4.7  Closes: #672083
