dpkg (22.214.171.124ubuntu4.6) lucid-proposed; urgency=low
* Cherry-pick fixes for sync() behaviour in dpkg (LP: #624877):
- Disable by default usage of synchronous sync(2), as it causes undesired
I/O on unrelated file systems. Closes: #588339, #595927, #600075
- On Linux use sync_file_range() to initiate asynchronous writeback
of just unpacked files. Suggested by Ted Ts'o <email address hidden>.
Thanks to Jonathan Nieder <email address hidden>. Closes: #605009
