Punt the dodgy ebuffer code. We now force prefixing for parallel starts which also reduces our variable pollution.
Allow syncing of hwlock for BSD and make our config files look fairly similar.
calc the files to install dynamically
Allow urandom location to be customized #134489.
SSD_NICELEVEL can now affect the nicelevel for daemons started by start-stop-daemon, #175397.
We now have an alternative to buffering stdout and stderr. RC_PREFIX="yes" will put the service name as a prefix to all output made by the service. Thanks to Ciaran McCreesh for the idea.
We now buffer stdout and stderr to a file and flush that when running in parallel. RC_PARALLEL_STARTUP has been renamed to RC_PARALLEL.
Rewrite the core parts in C. We now provide librc so other programs can query runlevels, services and state without using bash. We also provide libeinfo so other programs can easily use our informational functions. As such, we have dropped the requirement of using bash as the init script shell. We now use /bin/sh and have strived to make the scripts as portable as possible. Shells that work are bash and dash. busybox works provided you disable s-s-d. If you have WIPE_TMP set to yes in conf.d/bootmisc you should disable find too. zsh and ksh do not work at this time. Networking support is currently being re-vamped also as it was heavily bash array based. As such, a new config format is available like so config_eth0="188.8.131.52/24 184.108.40.206/16" or like so config_eth0="'220.127.116.11 netmask 255.255.255.0' '18.104.22.168 netmask 255.255.0.0'" We will still support the old bash array format provided that /bin/sh IS a link it bash. ChangeLog for baselayout-1 can be found in our SVN repo.
