Version: 229-4ubuntu21.4 2018-07-31 00:06:46 UTC

  systemd (229-4ubuntu21.4) xenial; urgency=medium

  * debian/extra/start-udev: test that sync parameters file is writable, before
    writing to it. On old kernels (e.g. v4.4) the file is available but is
    read-only, thus writing to it causes init to fail and thus raise a kernel
    panic. As an extra caution ignore failures to write into that file anyway,
    since synchronous scsi probing is not critical enough to prevent starting
    d-i. LP: #1784454

  systemd (229-4ubuntu21.3) xenial; urgency=medium

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
  * udev-udeb: ship modprobe.d snippet to force scsi_mod.scan=sync in d-i.

  [ Adam Conrad ]
  * debian/extra/start-udev: Set scsi_mod scan=sync even if it's builtin
    to the kernel (we previously only set it in modprobe.d) LP: #1779815

  [ Dimitri John Ledkov ]

  * networkd: apply promote_secondaries, to make DHCP lease changes work.
    (LP: #1721223)
  * shutdown: sync filesystems, before going into a killing spree.
    (LP: #1722481)
  * sysctl: do not fail, when cannot apply sysctl changes due to read-only sysfs in containers.
    (LP: #1734409)
  * networkd,wait-online: add RequiredForOnline to mark mandatory/optional links for boot.
    (LP: #1737570)
