   This update for SuSEfirewall2 provides the following fixes:

   - Make SuSEfirewall2 check for existing configuration in more sysctl.d
     style directories to allow packages and the user to create overrides
     easily (bsc#1044523)
   - Add support for customizing the sysctl paths to be scanned for existing
     configuration by changing the FW_SYSCTL_PATHS configuration variable
   - Correct the initialization order between SuSEfirewall2 and NFS
     components to make sure NFS server ports are correctly opened when both
     services are enabled in systemd, and to fix NFS clients not receiving
     callbacks from the server when started before SuSEfirewall2.
