The elfutils packages contain a number of utility programs and libraries related to the creation and maintenance of executable code. The elfutils packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.160, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.

(BZ#1109245) Users of elfutils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
