This update for suse-module-tools fixes the following issues:

  • modsign-verify: support for parsing PKCS#7 signatures (bsc#1111300, bsc#1105495)

  • Add udev rule 81-sg.rules to make sure the sg module is always loaded (bsc#1036463)
  • Use path dependency that is not parsed by obs to ensure we are not pulling systemd everywhere
