Subject: [ANNOUNCE] kmod 16

kmod 16 is out:

Most important change besides the bug fixes are:

 * we don't have an option in rmmod to wait module removal anymore.
This is gone from kernel and now is gone from kmod too. The constant
KMOD_REMOVE_NOWAIT in libkmod is still there for backward
compatibility but it's always enforced, passing O_NONBLOCK to

 * warn on wrong devname specification in depmod to help kernel
developers catch the bug earlier.

Shortlog is below.
