>  -- Wrap END_TIMER{,2,3} macro definition in "do {} while (0)" block.
>  -- Allow account coordinators to add users who don't already have an
>     association with any account.
>  -- If only allowing particular alloc nodes in a partition, deny any request
>     coming from an alloc node of NULL.

>     an inconsistent state.
>  -- Remove stray __USE_GNU macro definitions from source.
>  -- Fix loading fed state by backup on subsequent takeovers.
>  -- Add missing job read lock when loading fed job state.
>  -- Add missing fed_job_info jobs if fed state is lost.

>  -- Do not build switch/cray_aries plugin on FreeBSD, NetBSD, or macOS.
>  -- Fix build on FreeBSD.
>  -- Fix race condition in route/topology plugin.

>     IP address if the reverse lookup fails.
>  -- Fix infinite loop in slurmstepd handling for nss_slurm REQUEST_GETGR RPC.

>     on device name instead of brand name.
>  -- cli_filter - fix logic error with option lookup functions.
>  -- Fix bad testing of NodeFeatures debug flag in contribs/cray.

>     access.
