This is a warning asking us to change to the new style of working of a
library we use.  We have fixed this recently after the release is made.
 It is completely harmless though.

This is a known issue that we are running diagnostics on a module that
has not yet been setup.  It is being tracked here:

This message seems to be thrown by the Raspberry Pi kernel update
script.  We are complying with the request as this appears during setup
process (during image building) and then we actually boot and re-boot on
the actual device after that.

We are seeing this in the log of all the other images too.  It seems
harmless.  However, to get rid of it, looks like we need to have devpts
file system mounted.  I created a bug with the vmdebootstrap package
which is responsible for this:


Thank you,
