Default coreutils-8.11-1

Upstream update:

NEWS

* Noteworthy changes in release 8.11 (2011-04-13) [stable]

** Bug fixes

cp -a --link would not create a hardlink to a symlink, instead
copying the symlink and then not preserving its timestamp.
[bug introduced in coreutils-8.0]

cp now avoids FIEMAP issues with BTRFS before Linux 2.6.38,
which could result in corrupt copies of sparse files.
[bug introduced in coreutils-8.10]

cut could segfault when invoked with a user-specified output
delimiter and an unbounded range like "-f1234567890-".
[bug introduced in coreutils-5.3.0]

du would infloop when given --files0-from=DIR
[bug introduced in coreutils-7.1]

sort no longer spawns 7 worker threads to sort 16 lines
[bug introduced in coreutils-8.6]

touch built on Solaris 9 would segfault when run on Solaris 10
[bug introduced in coreutils-8.8]

wc would dereference a NULL pointer upon an early out-of-memory error
[bug introduced in coreutils-7.1]

** New features

dd now accepts the 'nocache' flag to the iflag and oflag options,
which will discard any cache associated with the files, or
processed portion thereof.

dd now warns that 'iflag=fullblock' should be used,
in various cases where partial reads can cause issues.

** Changes in behavior

cp now avoids syncing files when possible, when doing a FIEMAP copy.
The sync is only needed on Linux kernels before 2.6.39.
[The sync was introduced in coreutils-8.10]

cp now copies empty extents efficiently, when doing a FIEMAP copy.
It no longer reads the zero bytes from the input, and also can
efficiently

create a hole in the output file when --sparse=always is specified.

df now aligns columns consistently, and no longer wraps entries
with longer device identifiers, over two lines.

install now rejects its long-deprecated --preserve_context option.
Use --preserve-context instead.

test now accepts "==" as a synonym for "="


Signoff both,
Allan
