pciutils (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Like some former bugs on this package:
#96114 please update the pciutils database
#1207387 Please update pciutils for 12.04.3

I think it is time to update the packages database.

PCIutils is udpated from the site:
PCI ID Database updates from:

We are already ahead of Debian due to

pciutils (1:3.5.2-1ubuntu1) artful; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes:
    - Downloaded daily snapshot dated 2017-03-16 03:15:01·
    - debian/patches/lspci-Support-GEN4-speed-16GT-s.patch: Cherry-pick from
      upstream to support PCI gen4 cards in lspci.

But since then there was no Debian upload, and due to that it likely didn't show up in any MOM output or similar.

I don't think it is worth SRUing things, but e.g. cosmic would have a more than 15 months old DB without an upload - so I thought it is worth to ask.

Note: I came to look at it by a customer asking why is (rather new) device is listed as unknown.

While being "just" some data this could touch plenty of things, so I didn't want to upload things breaking the world and instead report it to then subscribe the former uploaders to consider it.

Related branches

Subscribing Andy and Steve as former uploaders, they should know if there are extra tripwires when touching this.

Changed in pciutils (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Triaged

It is clear what to do => Triaged and not very crtiical => medium.
Set the task status accordingly.

no tripwires that I know of

Ok, thanks Steve - just wanted to be sure having never touched it before.
I have prepared the rather trivial change - see MP that is up now and linked here.

I built it in Bileto and this will run autopkgtests over weekend to be sure it looks ok before hitting cosmic-proposed.

FYI: Pushed an update to Cosmic, migration might be interesting.


Pre-Checks showed issues in kernel tests that were clearly not related to the packages changes - we will see how it behaves on the real proposed-migration and then take action.
