#3713: kmod-19
 Reporter:  bdubbs@…  |      Owner:  lfs-book@…
     Type:  task      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal    |  Milestone:  7.7
Component:  Book      |    Version:  SVN
 Severity:  normal    |   Keywords:
 New version:

 - Bug fixes:
    - Fix missing CLOEXEC in library
    - Fix error message while opening kmod's index

 - New features:
    - Add kmod(8) man page
    - Allow to build with libc's without be32toh()
    - Move code around separating common code and data structures into a
      shared directory. This allows to share more code between library and
      tools, making the binary size of tools shorter.
    - Clarify tools vs library licenses
    - static-nodes: when writting in tmpfiles format, indicate that
      creation of static nodes should only happen at boot. This is used and
      required by systemd-217+.

 - Improvements to testsuite:
    - Add tests for newly created shared/ code
    - Improve how tests are declared so there's less boilerplate code for
      each test.
