       + 10-ipv6-privacy.conf: add a file to sysctl.d to apply the defaults
         for IPv6 privacy extensions for interfaces. (LP: #176125, #841353)
       + 10-magic-sysrq.conf: Disable most magic sysrq by default, allowing

    - ignore_erofs.patch: Same as ignore_eaccess but for the case where
      part of /proc is read/only.

    - Add basic autopkgtest to validate sysctl-defaults (LP: #1962038)
  * Refresh patches

      /etc to /usr.

    - debian/rules: Fix cross build (Closes: #1031343)
