mkinitcpio-nfs-utils 0.2-1:
Simon Boulay (1):
      revert code to klibc 1.5.15 as latest additions broke dhcp support

Announcement draft: mkinitcpio 0.6 uses busybox instead of klibc

The new mkinitcpio 0.6 brings lots of changes, most importantly the
removal of klibc in favor of glibc and busybox. This update should be
flawless and completely invisible to the end user, but if you are
paranoid you can still backup your old initramfs image and regenerate it
directly after the update to be sure.

If you use a root filesystem on NFS, you need to install the new package
