  * Used quilt patch system.
    + Moved slmodem-class-simple-to-class-meins.diff to debian/patches/
    + 01_Makefile.diff: Makefile cleanup to not loose the user-specified
      kernel version string.
    + modem_group.diff: set the default device group to "dialout".
    + 02_dial_string_size.diff: enlarge dial string buffer to 128 bytes
    + 03_Makefile_2.6.12.4.diff: workaround in drivers/Makefile for a kernel
      2.4 check accidentialy matching
    + 04_sregs_init.diff
    + 05_st7554_license.diff: changed the MODULE_LICENSE string to
      "Dual BSD/GPL" since the license is actually a BSD license clone.

      class/simple_class transition.

      the feedback section, mentioned the transfer of the modem business to

      -l <number>.
  * Added fortify_source.diff patch to fix FTBFS with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 
    compile flag.
  * Synch'ed ungrab-winmodem.c from
  * Remove debian/control.backup* as I don't see any use for them.
  * Update Standards-Version to 3.8.0.
  * Added watch file.
  * debian/rules: slusb support ends at 2.6.24, hence add a check for kernel
    sublevel, to prevent the attempt to install non-existing slusb.ko. Thanks
    to Maurizio Avogadro for the suggestion.
  * Translation updates: Swedish, German, Basque, French, Italian, Czech,
    Portuguese, Finnish, Japanese and Russian (Closes: #501038, #501043,
    #501065, #501102, #501108, #501213, #501225, #501701, #501632, #501593).
  * New translation: Arabic (Closes: #501196).
  * debian/control: Added Maurizio Avogadro to Uploaders field.
  * debian/sl-modem-daemon.init: changes from Ubuntu
    + sl-modem-daemon initscript waits for aplay (from alsa-utils) to report
      the card, as it appears in /proc/asound/cards before it is actually
      available to slmodemd. This extra check defeats this race.
    + Remove hard and soft ulimits for locked-in-core memory. This daemon
      unfortunately needs quite a bit of memory and it needs to be in core
      because it's doing the real-time modem DSP. This deals with LP: #144468
      and probably other bugs too.

  [Maurizio Avogadro]
  * debian/rules: removed code to append extra lines to modprobe.d file, since
    they are statically appended in debian/sl-modem-daemon.modutils.
  * The init script can now modprobe even if the slamr module has been
  * Modified 11_logfile.diff: Fixed the log path as the slmodemd daemon runs 
    as unprivileged user and didn't have write permissions on /var/log.
  * Added class_device.diff patch: since 2.6.25 class_device_add() and 
    class_device_destroy() has been renamed, modified st7554.c accordingly.
  * Removed obsolete /etc/modutils file.
  * Small enhancements to the modprobe.d file:
    + verify device permissions on module install
    + modprobe cleans /dev on module remove
  * Added some troubleshooting info to README.Debian.
