Util-linux 2.21 Release Notes
=============================

 The udev compatible output (-o udev) from blkid(8) is deprecated. Udev
 links directly to libblkid now.

Release highlights
------------------

chcpu(8):
   - this NEW COMMAND can modify the state of CPUs, enable or disable CPUs,
     scan for new CPUs, change the CPU dispatching mode of the underlying
     hypervisor, and request CPUs from the hypervisor (configure) or return CPUs to
     the hypervisor (deconfigure).

prlimit(1):
   - this NEW COMMAND is very smart command line interface to prlimit(2)
     syscall and allows to get and set a process resource limits. It's much
     more flexible than old shell built-in ulimit(1).

login(1):
   - the command has been rewritten, features:
     * strictly PAM-only, another authentication method is unsupported
     * compatible with Suse login(1)
     * supports /etc/login.defs(5) config file

losetup(8):
   - the command has been rewritten, features:
     * requires kernel >= 2.6
     * supports 64bit ioctls only
     * losetup -a does not require root permissions (kernel >= 2.6.37)
     * uses new /dev/loop-control kernel API (kernel >= 3.1)
     * supports new command line option --partscan to enable kernel partition
       table parser

mount(8), umount(8):
   - new pure libmount based mount(8) and umounts(8) commands are available,
     this experimental implementation could be enabled by --enable-new-mount

agetty(8):
   - supports new command line options --nohints to disable hints about Num,
     Caps and Scroll Locks
   - supports new command line option --remote to add a hostname to the 
     login(1) command line

dmesg(1):
   - supports new command line options --file to read the log from a file rather
     than from kernel buffer

fallocate(8):
   - supports new command line options --punch-hole to punch holes in the file

findmnt(8):
   - supports alternative location of the fstab file

ipcrm(8):
   - supports new command line option --all to remove all resources

lscpu(1):
   - supports new command line options --all, --offline and --online to list
     all, offline or online CPUs
   - supports s390 topology description (polarization, books, ...)

partx(8):
   - supports partitioned loop devices (note that since kernel 3.2 partitioned
     loop devices are usable everywhere (including Fedora))

wipefs(8):
   - allows to zap partition tables
   - supports new command line option "--type <list>" to wipe only specified
     filesystems, RAIDs or partition table types

libblkid:
   - provides new function blkid_do_wipe() to remove all signatures from the
     given block device. This new functionality is used in wipefs(8) and
     mkswap(8). It's recommended to use this function in mkfs-like programs.
