Description

While preparing the 3.10* releases, it was decided to skip updating the config/binary_rootfs/squashfs.sort (except for the kernel ABI bump through sed → 9593161c98d48d5cff744db23e4d171819c46ebf).

While preparing the 3.11 release, I've seen a bunch of updates under /run/udev. Latest file has:

anonym also mentioned filtering *.pyc files? It might be worth a few minutes figuring out what we could filter out every time, so as to reduce the diff's size on the long run?

Indeed, we could filter these out.

Yes, for some low value of "a few".
