Source: s390-tools
Version: 1.36.1-1
Severity: important
User: mpitt@debian.org
Usertags: libsysfs-deprecation


Some years ago libsysfs (source package: sysfsutils) was written as an
abstraction layer for accessing /sys/. However, this turned out to be
a historical error and evolutionary dead end: It does not actually
abstract anything (it's just as specific to the Linux kernel and a
particular version thereof as /sys itself), and just adds unnecessary
complexity, RAM overhead, and bugs. Thus its development has ceased
years ago, in favor of programs just using /sys as it is.

In fact, most applications probably don't want to access /sys at all,
but use libudev [1] or gudev [2] instead. These provide a better API
for device enumeration, properties, and callbacks for hardware

This package is one of the few which still use the old libsysfs. Can
you please check with upstream to prepare a migration away from
libsysfs to using plain /sys or libudev?

Thank you for considering!
