libarchive (3.0.3-6ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Add 03_ignore_fiemap_errors.patch: Ignore FIEMAP errors on linux < 2.6.28.
    This fixes a failing test case (and thus FTBFS) when building this on a
    hardy-based buildds. This can be dropped once the buildds get upgraded to
    something more modern. Thanks to Savvas Radevic for the patch!
