Please unblock package micro-evtd
[ Reason ]
One-line patch to fix FTBFS (#987631). Also taking the opportunity to
update the Maintainer field; I hope that's OK.
[ Impact ]
The package currently in bullseye (same as buster) works, however it
FTBFS with bullseye's glibc.
[ Tests ]
There are no automated tests. I have been running the updated daemon for
a few days, and I tested an installation with the updated udeb (using a
d-i daily image).
[ Risks ]
I built the package on buster with and without the patch, to see what
would change. The disassembly (objdump -d) was the same before and
after, so I think I can be confident the header was not actually used
and the patch should not change its behaviour.
However, the package had not been rebuilt since before buster was
released, so there could be unknown risks arising from rebuilding with
the newer toolchain.
[ Checklist ]
[â] all changes are documented in the d/changelog
[â] I reviewed all changes and I approve them
[â] attach debdiff against the package in testing
[ Other info ]
Very low popcon. The package provides hardware support for a specific
subset of armel/orion5x NAS devices with few remaining users.
The package builds a udeb. I tested an installation using a daily d-i
image that includes the update.
