It came to my attention that syslog-ng 1.6.10 broke file("/proc/kmsg")
support with the recent performance improvement patches as /proc/kmsg
does not support nonblocking mode.

The issue might cause the complete system to deadlock. Non-Linux
platforms, or installation where /proc/kmsg is not directly processed by
syslog-ng is not affected.

I'm going to release 1.6.11 as soon as possible to fix this issue.
