rebase to 0.14.1 to get the fix for 839605

* Wed Jul 18 2012 Angus Salkeld <asalkeld at redhat.com> - 0.14.1-1
RB: set the new read pointer after clearing the header (#839605).
RB: improve the debug print outs
RB: be more explicit about the word alignment
RB: cleanup the macros for wrapping the index
RB: use sem_getvalue as a tie breaker when read_pt == write_pt
RB: if read or peek don't get the message then re-post to the semaphore
RB: convert the rb_peek() status into a recv like status.
RB: use internal reclaim function
IPC: use calloc instead of malloc to fix valgrind warnings
Upgrade the doxygen config.
Fix a valgrind error.
* Sun Jun 24 2012 Angus Salkeld <asalkeld at redhat.com> - 0.14.0-1
LOG: fix threaded logging.
Add user control of the permissions that are set on the shared mem files
LOG: Restrict string trucation during serialization to when a precision is specified
LOG: Gracefully fail when the caller exceeds QB_LOG_MAX_LEN
LOG: Observe field widths when serializing string arguments
RB: use the same mechanism in reclaim as read/peek to detect end-of-ring
Add needs_response_ack option to ./check
RB: fix wrong sem_flg IPC_NOWAIT option
TESTS: fix warning about unused functions
Remove D_FORTIFY_SOURCE from check.
Open shared mem file in /dev/shm only for linux
Don't use msg_flags on solaris (recvmsg).
Turn off attribute_section on solaris
ipc example: add -e (events) option
IPC: if the server returns EAGAIN or ETIMEOUT the check the connection
LOG: make it possible to fsync() on each file log.
IPC: make sure that the created callback happens before dispatches
LOG: fix the printing of %p in the blackbox
IPC: On bsd's use the notifier for responses
cleanup some warnings
config: use newer AC_COMPILE_IFELSE()
blackbox: fix %p formatting
LOG: put all fields in the blackbox (added priority and tags)
example: make the priority uint8_t
Remove strerror out of check_funcs
RB: fix compiler warning.
Add replacement function stpcpy
Add missing AC_TYPE_UINT16_T to configure.ac
Add stpcpy strcasecmp to the check_funcs
Move some conditional defines into code (from the configure script)
Remove some unused configure checks
Remove message queues
Check for union semun properly
Blackbox: provide more space for log messages when reading from the blackbox.
Add the blackbox reader manpage to the spec file
Enable error logging for the blackbox reader
RB: Read the file size into an initialized variable of the correct size
Add a tool to dump the blackbox.
RB: to be safer save the read and write pointers at the top of the blackbox
avoid unwarranted use of strncpy: use memcpy instead
blackbox: fix the print_from_file()
RB: add an option to not use any semaphores
LOG: tweak the blackbox format string
LOG: accept NULL strings into the blackbox
LOG: protect close and reload from calling log
Add benchmark option (-b) to examples/ipcclient
TEST: make rbreader/writer more like the other benchmarking apps
IPC: log the connection description in all logs
TEST: re-organise the ipc test suites
IPC: only modify the dispatch if we get EAGAIN
Correctly display timestamp in blackbox
