  console-setup (1.108ubuntu15.5) xenial; urgency=medium

  * setupcon: use /run for tempfiles (and dump the various unnecessary
    fallback paths), since /run is always mountable rw at least as early as
    /tmp is and is guaranteed to be safe from tmpcleaners at boot. Only keep
    /tmp as a fallback in case we have access to write to /tmp and to a
    console, but not to /run. LP: #1824227.

  console-setup (1.108ubuntu15.4) xenial; urgency=medium

   * Drop dependency from console-setup to initramfs-tools |
     linux-initramfs-tool; this was a versioned dependency used for upgrades,
     now long obsolete. LP: #1721626.

  console-setup (1.108ubuntu15.3) xenial; urgency=medium

  * debian/console-setup-linux.setvtrgb.service: add condition to only
    execute when /dev/tty0 exists. This is the same condition as used by
    getty@.service unit to prevent attempting setting up VT when none are
    present. This is a common case on serial only architectures and
    virtual machines. Resolves degraded boots on s390x/ppc64el. LP:

  console-setup (1.108ubuntu15.2) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Reorganize and correct console-setup, keyboard-setup and setvtrgb along the
    lines of the logic in 16.04: (LP: #1591622, #1593156)
    - debian/console-setup-linux.setvtrgb.service: don't require being run
      before system-getty.slice.
    - debian/keyboard-configuration.links: both console-setup and
      keyboard-setup systemd units should be installed to sysinit.target rather
      than multi-user.
    - debian/keyboard-configuration.keyboard-setup.service: move loadkeys call
      at local-fs-pre.target and in this more suitable location.
    - debian/keyboard-configuration.console-setup.service: move to running
      after the screen, keyboard, and filesystems are ready and set up all of
      what may still need to be done to configure the virtual consoles
      appropriately: set a final keymap, font, etc.
