Subject: [ANNOUNCE] iproute2 5.17.0 release

This is the release of iproute2 corresponding to the 5.17 kernel.
There are not a lot of features, mostly just small bug fixes.

TL;DR: warnings when building with libbpf on more recent
Linux distributions are expected.

Iproute2 now has the option of using libbpf for management
of bpf object files as of v5.11 and libbpf is still not completely
settled.  Over the past year, libbpf has been marching to a v1.0
release where it is deprecating many APIs and supported runtime
functionality. Those deprecations manifest as a number of compile
warnings and runtime warnings, depending on libbpf version. The
messages are just warnings to the builder and user; there is not any
*expected* behavior changes prior to the v1.0 release.

At this time, iproute2 v5.17 compiles cleanly with libbpf up to
version 0.6, but there are a few warnings with libbpf 0.7 released in
February 2022 - the latest version as of the release of iproute2 5.17.
The compile time warnings are mostly addressed by the current -next
branch and will be fixed by the time iproute2 v5.18 is released. In
general, this will be an on-going problem as more APIs are deprecated
leading up to the 1.0 release.
