Disruptive amd64 snapshot coming

Contributed by rueda on from the firing-the-disruptors dept.

Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) posted to tech@ a message entitled disruptive amd64 snapshot coming. It reads:

There is a pretty disruptive amd64 snapshot coming, so anyone who is
using snapshots for critical stuff should take a pause.  (This warning
about a development step is unusual, I won't make it common practice).

Of course, on non-critical amd64 systems running snapshots, this is a good opportunity to test (and report any problems).

      Maybe save an old kernel before upgrading in case you need it. Expect a lot of software written in Go to break.
