Release Notes: Some bugfixes and a new "static-nodes" command for parsing "modules.devname".
Release Notes: modinfo no longer fails while loading a module from a file when the path contains the ".ko" suffix. This release fixes removing vermagic and the __versions section when force-loading a module.
Release Notes: rmmod's "--wait" option is now hidden, as there are plans to remove the feature from the kernel. depmod execution time was also reduced, especially for compressed modules.
Release Notes: This release supports reading the coresize from /sys. The API has gained a parameter to apply blacklisting during probe for aliases only, which modprobe is now also using.
Release Notes: This release now handles errors when reading/writing gzipped modules. depmod now handles and prints errors so that the user is aware of potential index corruption.
