Neil Horman Dec. 20, 2014, 9:01 p.m. UTC
To differentiate libraries that break ABI, we add a library version number
suffix to the library, which must be incremented when a given libraries ABI is
broken.  This patch enforces that addition, sets the initial abi soname
extension to 1 for each library and creates a symlink to the base SONAME so that
the test applications will link properly.
