System Five Hundred has now reached Version Two Hundred, how awesome is

Mostly bug fixes.



        * The boot-time readahead implementation for rotating media
          will now read the read-ahead data in multiple passes which
          consist of all read requests made in equidistant time
          intervals. This means instead of strictly reading read-ahead
          data in its physical order on disk we now try to find a
          middle ground between physical and access time order.

        * /etc/os-release files gained a new BUILD_ID= field for usage
          on operating systems that provide continuous builds of OS

PS: To get the above bit about System Five Hundred, think about the
roman numeral for 500... (and while you are at it, I hope you figured out
the relation to System V, now ;-))
