unblock coreutils

Please unblock coreutils. Changes are mostly bugfixes, and one change to make ls -l output on an selinux system work like it does in etch pending new output format from upstream in later version of coreutils. (Without that change, every file in ls -l output gets labeled as having an extended acl due to selinux default tags, which obscures files with non-default attributes.) Changes have been stable with no new bugs for a while.

coreutils (6.10-6) unstable; urgency=low

 * [76] Add ubuntu/upstream patch to prevent failure of cp of a special
   (e.g., fifo) file to an existing file
 * [71] change getgrouplist patch to skip the autoconf test and use
getgrouplist unconditionally. (Patch isn't immediately ready for upstream anyway, and I assume that glibc provides this function
   on all our supported platforms. If this turns out to not be true,
   I'll revisit.) (Closes: #459615)

coreutils (6.10-5) unstable; urgency=low

 * [75] Fix that last patch so that it doesn't display error messages
   on non-selinux systems (closes: 473739)

coreutils (6.10-4) unstable; urgency=low

 * [74] upstream patch to allow dd & other commands to use /dev/stdin
   (Thanks Paul Eggert) (closes: #290727)
 * [75] prevent ls from displaying a + for files with an selinux context.
   (this will change in future, but the exact future output isn't certain
   yet) (Thanks Russell Coker) (closes: #472590)
 * Add a watch file to keep people from complaining about not having a watch
   file. (closes: #441108)
 * printf(1) now references printf(3) (closes: #465522)
