[ANNOUNCE] kmod 3

Hi,

I'm glad to announce kmod 3! Signed tarball is available at

http://packages.profusion.mobi/kmod/kmod-3.tar.xz

In this version we added a new implementation of depmod, the only missing tool
to completely replace module-init-tools. We have only a couple of options

missing yet and need more testing, so I'd not say distros could start shipping
kmod instead of module-init-tools yet. This will probably be possible with the
next version.

We removed the several kmod-* tools that mimic the module-init-tools ones. Now
there's only one tool called 'kmod' that does the right thing when symlinks are
used with the previous names.

I'd like to thank again Dave Reisner and Tom Gundersen for the really good work
at testing, reporting bugs and helping on solving them. Right now we received
feedback from them and other people that are testing on the following
architectures: i686, x86_64, sparcv9, sparc64, powerpc64, s390, ARM and sh4.
Any architecture missing here? With this version we also fixed a major bug on
architectures that do not support unaligned accesses.

It's also worth noting that now udev is already using kmod for loading
modules.For more information about new things, please check the NEWS file that
we ship with kmod.

For the next version we plan to review some APIs, extract documentation from
source code and generate the missing man pages. Hopefully we will already be
hosted on kernel.org, too.
