The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* util-linux-2.33.1-2
* libblkid1-2.33.1-2
* libblkid-devel-2.33.1-2
* libfdisk1-2.33.1-2
* libfdisk-devel-2.33.1-2
* libsmartcols1-2.33.1-2
* libsmartcols-devel-2.33.1-2
* libuuid1-2.33.1-2
* libuuid-devel-2.33.1-2
* uuidd-2.33.1-2

This is a re-spin of Cygwin's current util-linux release 2.33.1 that
adds a 'taskset' executable.  Taskset takes advantage of the recent
addition of cpu affinity support to Cygwin.  It allows one to assign
Cygwin processes to a specific cpu or cpus.

I'd like to thank Cygwin user Eliot Moss for his encouragement in
getting cpu affinity support added to Cygwin, and his patches that
made possible the clean building of this util-linux update.
