  Description     : interface of the 'packetstream' thread-safe ring buffer

 Packetstream is basically a solution to the Producer-Consumer problem 
with a
 fixed size ring buffer and variable item (=packet) size. This 
implementation
 follows classic solution using semaphores with a few exceptions:
 1. Since the maximum amount of items the buffer can hold is not known,
 semaphore "empty" (=read_packets) is only decreased when producer needs to
 remove a consumed item to have space for a new one.
 2. Multiple producers 1..n can simultaneously write to the buffer 
providing
 that there is enough free space and all producers 1..n-1 have set a 
size for
 their items.
 3. Multiple consumers 1..n can simultaneously read from the buffer if 
there is
 1..n ready items.

I am packging this because it is a build dependency of glc:
https://github.com/nullkey/glc which I also hope to package, see

thanks

Similarly to glc I've stopped actively working on this at the moment,
the upstream seems inactive and I feel that this package is not
something to dump in Debian without confirmed upstream maintenance.

I've attempted to contact upstream several times with no response.
