linux-base (3.5ubuntu4) quantal-proposed; urgency=low

   * Remove perf man page since its provided by (and conflicts with)
     -LP: #1008713

linux-base (3.5ubuntu3) quantal; urgency=low

   * remove the postinst script, in ubuntu we did the UUID transition
     years ago and it does not seem to take u-boot into account as a
     bootloader. this results in a debconf error message on all arm

linux-base (3.5ubuntu2) quantal; urgency=low

   * Added 'Build-Depends: quilt'

linux-base (3.5ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

   * Added quilt patch support
   * Remove /usr/bin/perf from this package as it conflicts with
     the Ubuntu kernel tools package linux-tools-common (which
     provides the real /usr/bin/perf). I can think of no reason why
     this should cause a problem. /usr/bin/perf is kernel ABI version
     specific, therefore it can only be provided by the correct
     version of linux-tools-$version-$abi.
