  procps (1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.4) precise; urgency=medium

  * ignore_erofs.patch: Same as ignore_eaccess but for the case where

Version: 1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.3 2013-11-05 16:06:52 UTC

  procps (1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.3) precise; urgency=low

  * Avoid SEGV if file2str should read zero bytes. This is a backport of
    526bc5df from upstream. When utility buffers were introduced for file2str
    read requests, a subtle change was inadvertently introduced such that a
    read of zero no longer returns a -1 value. This returns to the behavior to
    returning -1 on zero byte reads. (LP: #1242746)

1242746 SIGSEGV when file2str reads zero bytes

Version: 1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.2 2013-10-17 21:06:23 UTC

  procps (1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.2) precise; urgency=low

  * ignore_eaccess.patch: If we get eaccess when opening a sysctl file for
    writing, don't error out. Otherwise package upgrades can fail, especially
    in containers. (LP: #1157643)

1157643 procps fail to start

Version: 1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.1 2013-10-15 17:07:24 UTC

  procps (1:3.2.8-11ubuntu6.1) precise; urgency=low

  * Backport of a45dace4 and 95d01362 in order to enable dynamically
    allocated buffers in file2str. This fixes a number of seg fault problems
    including the one related to large numbers of groups per user.
