lockdev (0.11) unstable; urgency=low
* Avoided repetute locking of the semaphore.
* Corrected special case of semaphore misbehaviour (found while
crosschecking between two instancies running under gdb).
* Added modification on-the-fly of major number of device from 4 to 5
in case it was referring to one of the 64 cua devices; it now locks
the major+minor numbers of the corresponding ttyS device. The name
remains unaffected, as it could be an arbitrary name.
(Thanx to Daniel Quinlan <email@example.com>)
* Tryed to use fcntl instead of flock, after suggestion of Daniel
Quinlan, to permit use on NFS mounted partitions.
I wasn't able to make it correctly work, so I conditioned the
changes and left the code there, for further (future)
investigations. Any help highly appreciated.
* changed third file (LCK..<pid>) to have three dots, and made it stay
there, as a quick reference. It doesn't hurt, and shouw the pid with
a simple ls -l
* Added full text of LGPL licence instead of GPL one added in the
previous version (oops).
