The 5.10 kernel version introduced "unknown ioctl 1976" warnings on the console with the Open VM Tools package (no other drawbacks known).

The following kernel modules have been integrated into the x86_64 kernel to fix this issue and to add support for certain virtualization features:



142411 - Fixed the resize script which resizes a partition inside a VM

The script was broken and the usage caused data loss.

163276 - Updated kernel to 6.6.21


166990 - Added libbacktrace

Added backtrace library so that Apps can create their own backtraces on crashes, as gdb on ARM cannot work with coredumps anymore.

166989 - Changes for libmariadb instead of libmysqlclient

Old library is still available in addition to new library which is interface compatible (no SDK changes required).
