OpenVZ project has released a new ploop version. Read below for
more information. Everybody is advised to upgrade.

(since 1.8)

New functionality:

* Introduce ploop_get_devs() to get all mounted devices per dd.xml

* make_fs(): reserve max possible GDT block for online resize
* do_lock(): set FD_CLOEXEC explicitly on lock fd
* fix raw image creation (broken in ploop 1.8)
* return SYSEXIT_SYS on ploop_find_dev_by_uuid() failure
* ploop.spec: run ldconfig on install/uninstall

* Display mount data in error message on mount() failure
* dynload.h: pad the struct ploop_functions to 64 pointers
* gensym.sh: add code to check sizeof(struct ploop_function)
* etc/Makefile: ploop.conf should not be executable
