FEDORA-2019-e54679a784 created by szpak a year ago for Fedora 30

Update from 0.5.6 to 0.6.1. The official changelog:

0.6.1. Minor bugfix, performance and compatibility release.

  • Minor compatibility fix: on Linux, drop the use of the attr library, and instead switch to the glibc header sys/xattr.h, which is provided for a really long time (since glibc 2.3). The formerly used header attr/xattr.h has been removed from the attr library in version 2.4.48. Fix provided by Lars Wendler, many thanks!
  • Release the GIL when performing I/O. Patch proposed by xwhuang, many thanks. I tested this a long while back it seemed to impact performance on local filesystems, but upon further inspection, the downsides are minor (between 0 and 5%, in many cases negligible). For remote or slow filesystems, this should allow much increased parallelism.
  • Fix symlink set operation on MacOS X; bugfix provided by adamlin, much appreciated! This also uncovered testing problems related to symlinks, which are now fixed (the bug would be caught by the updated tests).

0.6.0. Bugfix and feature release (hence the version bump).

The main change is to the implementation of how attributes are listed and read. This was done due to existing race issues when attributes are modified while being read (github issue #12), but basically all various internal paths that dealt with retrieving an attribute value or listing attributes were unified in a single helper function that does handle such concurrent modifications. As a side effect, the size of the buffers used for such reads have changed, which (depending on attribute value) might change the trade-off between number of syscalls done and memory usage.
