Bug Description

Please sync libibverbs 1.1.8-1 (main) from Debian unstable (main)

Explanation of the Ubuntu delta and why it can be dropped:
  * debian/libibverbs1.postinst: Remove creation of rdma group (since Ubuntu uses 0666 udev rules; see bug 256216)
  * Update config.{guess,sub}.
The config.{guess,sub} files were updated in the new upstream release, and I can't find any reference to "rdma" in the systemd source package in Utopic, so that delta is likely no longer necessary.

Changelog entries since current utopic version 1.1.7-1ubuntu1:

libibverbs (1.1.8-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
    - XRC support
    - Flow steering support
    - Generic infrastructure for further "verbs extensions"
  * Update to Standards-Version: 3.9.5.

No, I know that it still creates the rdma group in this package. What I'm referring to is the reason why we removed this in the postinst in the first place, which itself referred to what was done in Bug 256216. There was a delta in Ubuntu's udev (now systemd) regarding the rdma group, but that's no longer present, so we can safely create the group here now, I believe.

No, nothing has changed in Ubuntu's udev wrt. to that. Debian's udev also does not use the rdma group any more, so the group should instead be dropped in Debian as well. We really don't want all these extra "device permissions" group creep back into Ubuntu. They are evil, bad, and wrong...
