kexec-tools (1:2.0.10-2ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable.(LP: #1587479)  Remaining changes:
    - Default to not kexecing a kernel on boot in the automatically
      generated conffile
    - Don't call db_stop from the postinst.
    - Adjust INITCONFFILE to vmlinux if used
    - Use format-security.patch instead of const_string_warning.patch
    - Drop unneeded patches (all fixed upstream and not in series) :
    - [PowerPC64] Fix failure in purgatory when compiled with gcc5
       Application of upstream fixes so kexec-tools work with gcc5 on PowerPC64
       commit 4a2ae3a39c64dc43e9d094be9541253234ff4822,
  * New changes:
    - Add maintainer script helper to handle removal of conffile
      /etc/default/grub.d/kexec-tools.cfg has been removed.
      Handle it properly
    - Add Breaks: statement toward kdump-tools
       Starting with kdump-tools 1:1.5.9-6, this package takes
       over the addition of crashkernel= parameter which has
       been removed from kexec-tools.
       Make sure that it is upgraded accordingly.
  * Dropped changes from previous merge
    - Add and install kdump init script and initramfs snippet :
      kdump script in initramfs replaced by kexec-tools long ago
    - Call to update-grub to update boot args with crashkernel= :
      Now handled by kexec-tools (>= 1:1.5.9-6)
