[fedora-arm] Re: F38->F39

Thanks, Gents. I used Peter Robinson's command (below) and it worked
fine, performing the upgrade from F38 to F39 in about half an hour.

The only thing that 'broke' was gpiofind, which has disappeared. On
closer inspection, it is not really needed in F39, but I did have to
rework all my gpioset commands.

I noticed that commands of the kind,

gpioset -p 5s line=0

(to assert a line for, say, 5 seconds) do not really work. Such a
command just asserts the line for ever rather than for just 5 seconds.
The man page does say that the -p flag gives you "at least" the time
specified, but just asserting the line for ever does not really seem in
the spirit of the command (to me).

Thanks for you help Brad and Peter,
