Description

1.30 is the first version to support Maglev hashing: https://lwn.net/Articles/792617/

1.31 is available in Bullseye, so hopefully this is trivial.

Turns out this was trivial. 1:1.31-1+deb10u1 is now in buster-wikimedia. I'll test on some backup LVS machine tomorrow or early next week.

JFTR; 1:1.31-1+deb10u1 is not an ideal version for an internal backport; better use 1:1.31-1~deb10u1 or 1:1.31-0+deb10u1 for future backports: If there's no further upload of ipvsadm in the remaining development cycle of Debian bullseye, then 1:1.31-1 would become the next stable version in Buster and 1:1.31-1+deb10u1 sorts higher than that, which can cause issues on dist-upgrades since the older version is retained. We typically reimage, though (with the odd exceptions), so we can simply keep the current version as-is, just a remark for future backports.

Ah, sorry, I didn't think that hard about sort order. It's been many, many years now since I had an @debian.org email address.
