upgraded a few of our dependencies including:
jnr-ffi, 2.0.7 -> 2.0.9
jnr-posix, 3.0.27 -> 3.0.44
A problem with this is that jnr-posix depends on jnf-ffi 2.1.7 and is not compatible with 2.0.9. Because of this, POSIX.getpid() always returns 0 instead of the actual process id.
This would affect users who run the driver in multiple JVMs on the same host, as it is possible they might generated the same UUIDs when calling UUIDs.timeBased.
We should fix this before we go out with 3.5.0 and dse driver 1.6
Oddly, this doesn't seem to be an issue with gradle, as gradle prefers the latest called out version (including transitive dependencies) and since jnr-ffi depends on 2.1.7, it pulls that in. Maven on the other hand appears to give precedence to direct dependency versions over transitive dependency versions.
We should just remove our direct dependency on jnr-ffi and let it get pulled in by jnr-posix.
