* New patch no_helper_for_nis+.patch, which restores the behavior of doing
in-process NIS+ account checking instead of unconditionally passing it
off to the unix_chkpwd helper; if it wasn't broke, don't fix it.
+ * New patch pam_unix_fix_sgid_shadow_auth.patch, fixing an upstream
+ regression which prevents sgid shadow apps from being able to authenticate
+ any more because the module forces use of the helper and the helper won't
+ allow authentication of arbitrary users. This change does mean we're
+ going to be noisier for the time being in an SELinux environment, which
+ should be addressed but is not a regression on Debian.
* The password-changing helper functionality for SELinux systems has been
split out into a separate unix_update binary, so at long last we can
change unix_chkpwd to be sgid shadow instead of suid root.
