gnutar: 1.30 -> 1.31
Semi-automatic update generated by tools. This update was made
based on information from
add generic x86_32 support (#52634)
* add generic x86_32 support

- Add support for i386-i586.
- Add `isx86_32` predicate that can replace most uses of `isi686`.
- `isi686` is reinterpreted to mean "exactly i686 arch, and not say i585 or i386".
- This branch was used to build working i586 kernel running on i586 hardware.

* revert `isi[345]86`, remove dead code

- Remove changes to dead code in `doubles.nix` and `for-meta.nix`.
- Remove `isi[345]86` predicates since other cpu families don't have specific model predicates.

* remove i386-linux since linux not supported on that cpu
iproute: 4.19.0 -> 4.20.0

related to ip neigh support for offloaded entries." [0]

dns-root-data: the old KSK is dead!
Long live... eh, I hope the new KSK won't live as long as the old one.
Anyway, it doesn't really matter how fast people update this.
See RFC 5011 for details of the protocol.

I re-tested validation with both of these files, to be sure.

qt511.qtdeclarative: fix CMake `qmlcachegen` path
This package contains several CMake files used for setting up its
provided tools for use in other projects build with CMake.
While packaging *ktouch* I found out that the ${_qt5Core_install_prefix}
variable doesn't expand at all, rendering the path to the `qmlcachegen`
binary useless. As a fix, the command itself is used instead of the path
to the binary.

ktouch: init at 18.12.0
packaging the `ktouch` touch typing tutor. Due to Qt impurities, it
needs to be installed in a profile to find it runtime dependencies.

llvm_6, llvm_7: build all default targets (#53941)
This makes LLVM tools (including dependent tools such as LLD) readily useful in
more situations, foresees such needed additions as BPF and NVPTX, and brings
llvm_6 and newer on par with the current default llvm_5.
openblas: 0.3.4 -> 0.3.5, rework a bit (#53972)
* openblas: simplify a bit, fix doCheck so tests are enabled non-cross.

* doCheck should be 'true' in (at least) the non-cross case,
  this looks like an inverted check that's largely benign
* doCheck will be set to 'false' in the cross case anyway,
  makeDerivation does this IIRC
* targetPrefix can be used without checking, probably by design

Derivation hash does change but no "real" functionality change intended.

* openblas: nix types for config attrs (hash-preserving)

* openblas: more nix-ification, merge in cross attrs, prefer to always set

(but set appropriately for cross and non-cross cases both)

* I'm not sure what NO_BINARY_MODE does,
  this change now sets explicitly false in the non-cross scenario
  (previously unset unless cross).
* Drop musl NO_AFFINITY case, will be removed in upgrade shortly

* openblas: 0.3.4 -> 0.3.5

LGTM, not sure why these weren't used originally though.

This caused multiple build problems in practice, so for now I pushed 3d979f4.

Hi, sorry, since this was merged, the sickgear package no longer works (it says it can't find the cheetah module). What can I do to make it work with your change? I don't want to waste too much of your time so even if you could point me in the right direction it would be great!
