Bug#549710: release-notes: [SQUEEZE] udev drops support for kernels < 2.6.22

Package: release-notes
Severity: important

Squeeze udev version will not support < 2.6.22 kernels.

Recent releases of udev depend on signalfd(2), so squeeze will require
at least a 2.6.22 kernel.
The mechanism used for the etch to lenny upgrade is still in place, so
hopefully it will work again.

I suppose that the release notes will need to be updated.

The udev package in unstable does not reflect this yet, I will fix it in
the next upload.

libsane maintainer: you can now remove the rules related to
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device" (old style /dev/bus/usb/).
