- New upstream release
- Fix several build warnings
- Update spec files to use macros
- Update Requires to use packages rather than pointing at files
- Drop BR on kernel-devel since it's not required anymore
- Update build section to use proper _sysconfdir, libdir and sbindir
- Avoid abusing cd when we can ask make to do the work for us
- Remove /usr/sbin from file section. We don't have any file there
  and we can avoid shipping stuff by mistake
