> -- Fix regression where a dependency on multiple jobs in a single array using
> underscores would only add the first job.

> -- Fix AMD GPU ROCM 3.5 support.
> -- Fix handling of job arrays in sacct when querying specific steps.
> -- slurmrestd - avoid fallback to local socket authentication if JWT
> authentication is ill-formed.
> -- slurmrestd - restrict ability of requests to use different authentication
> -- slurmrestd - unlink named unix sockets before closing.
> -- slurmrestd - fix invalid formatting in openapi.json.

> -- Fix updating reservations to set the duration correctly if updating the
> start time.
> -- Fix update reservation to promiscuous mode.
> -- Fix override of job tasks count to max when ntasks-per-node present.
> -- Fix min CPUs per node not being at least CPUs per task requested.
> -- Fix CPUs allocated to match CPUs requested when requesting GRES and
> threads per core equal to one.
> -- Fix NodeName config parsing with Boards and without CPUs.
> -- Ensure SLURM_JOB_USER and SLURM_JOB_UID are set in SrunProlog/Epilog.
> -- Fix error messages for certain invalid salloc/sbatch/srun options.
> -- pmi2 - clean up sockets at step termination.
> -- Fix 'scontrol hold' to work with 'JobName'.
> -- sbatch - handle --uid/--gid in #SBATCH directives properly.
> -- Fix race condition in job termination on slurmd.
> -- Print specific error messages if trying to run use certain
> priority/multifactor factors that cannot work without SlurmDBD.
> -- Avoid partial GRES allocation when --gpus-per-job is not satisfied.
> -- Cray - Avoid referencing a variable outside of it's correct scope when
> dealing with creating steps within a het job.
> -- slurmrestd - correctly handle larger addresses from accept().
> -- Avoid freeing wrong pointer with SlurmctldParameters=max_dbd_msg_action
> with another option after that.
> -- Restore MCS label when suspended job is resumed.
> -- Fix insufficient lock levels.
> -- slurmrestd - use errno from job submission.
> -- Fix "user" filter for sacctmgr show transactions.
> -- Fix preemption logic.
> -- Fix no_consume GRES for exclusive (whole node) requests.
> -- Fix regression in 20.02 that caused an infinite loop in slurmctld when
> requesting --distribution=plane for the job.
> -- Fix parsing of the --distribution option.
> -- Add CONF READ_LOCK to _handle_fed_send_job_sync.
> -- prep/script - always call slurmctld PrEp callback in _run_script().
> -- Fix node estimation for jobs that use GPUs or --cpus-per-task.
> -- Fix jobcomp, job_submit and cli_filter Lua implementation plugins causing
> slurmctld and/or job submission CLI tools segfaults due to bad return
> handling when the respective Lua script failed to load.
> -- Fix propagation of gpu options through hetjob components.
> -- Add SLURM_CLUSTERS environment variable to scancel.
> -- Fix packing/unpacking of "unlinked" jobs.
> -- Connect slurmstepd's stderr to srun for steps launched with --pty.
> -- Handle MPS correctly when doing exclusive allocations.
> -- slurmrestd - fix compiling against libhttpparser in a non-default path.
> -- slurmrestd - avoid compilation issues with libhttpparser < 2.6.
> -- Fix compile issues when compiling slurmrestd without --enable-debug.
> -- Reset idle time on a reservation that is getting purged.
> -- Fix reoccurring reservations that have Purge_comp= to keep correct
> duration if they are purged.
> -- scontrol - changed the "PROMISCUOUS" flag to "MAGNETIC"
> -- Early return from epilog_set_env in case of no_consume.
> -- Fix cons_common/job_test start time discovery logic to prevent skewed
> results between "will run test" executions.
