* Mon Feb 14 2011 Andreas Schwab <schwab@xxxxxxxxxx> - 2.13.90-4
- Update from master
  - Update sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/sparc/bits/socket.h
  - Synchronize generic bits/sched.h cpu_set_t with Linux implementation
  - Schedule nscd cache pruning more accurately from re-added values
  - Fix passing symbol value to pltexit callbacks when ld.so auditing
  - Fix range error handling in sgetspent
- Revert "Fix ordering of DSO constructors and destructors" (#673014)
- Create debuginfo-common on biarch archs
- Reinstall assembler workaround.
- Replace setuid by file capabilities (#646469)

thats the change that makes it not work,  nfsv3 doesnt support file
capablities. initing a chroot fails. which means you can not use mock
on it.

I never said it was perfect. just that it may be better that the io
bound bottle neck we have right now.
