new snapshot available: coreutils-8.0.123-bf5af

I expect this to be very similar to coreutils-8.1.
Please give it a spin and report back that you did.
This release inherits many portability improvements
from gnulib (thanks mostly to Eric Blake), so if you can
test on *BSD or Solaris, you should see fewer failed tests.

The main change in coreutils-proper since the preceding
snapshot is this bug fix:

    tail -F (inotify-enabled) now consistently tails a file that has been
    replaced via renaming.  That operation provokes either of two sequences
    of inotify events.  The less common sequence is now handled as well.
    [The bug came with the implementation change in coreutils-7.5]
