    Description:


    Libnetcontrol has been updated to version 0.2.8, resolving
    the following issues:

    * Fixed ncf_close to not close logger as ncf_init did
    not open any. This caused SEGV's in libvirt, that redirects
    the global logger to itself and is using multiple ncf
    instances. (bnc#811002)
    * Fixed pthreads detection and source enablement in
    configure, added an explicit configure --enable-pthreads
    option to spec file to cause a failure on detection
    problems. (bnc#811002)
    * Fixed SEGV at parsing not existing BRIDGE_PATHCOSTS
    and memory leaks in in loop check, xml parsing and on
    backup file creation failure while routes file rewrite.
    (bnc#810381)
    * Fixed a bridge variable initialization in try_bridge.
