  • 3642 OLPC XO-4 - bluetooth test, increase number of responses that are allowed from non-participant devices to the maximum, prevents premature completion of the inquiry command in dense device environments, per #12655
  • 3641 disklabel - fix no access to primary partition if extended partition is empty, workaround is to set the primary partition bootable, cause in the partition finder which when recursing reused the same buffer for the extended partition, destroying the in-memory copy of the primary parition; fix is to use a separate buffer in the recursion. Reported by Vladimir Serbinenko.
  • 3639 inet - add an alias for stop-capture
  • 3638 fatfs, skip volume label directory entries, some filesystem instances have them and they remain after repair.
  • 3637 fatfs, fix a stack effect comment
  • 3636 OLPC XO-4 - vMeta driver device-tree changes from Jon Nettleton.
