xen (4.6.0-1ubuntu4) xenial; urgency=low
* d/rules.real: Set LANG=C.UTF-8 for the builds to avoid a grep bug.

xen (4.6.0-1ubuntu3) xenial; urgency=low
* Fix unmount error message on shutdown and init script ordering issues:
- d/xen-utils-common.xenstored.init: Introduce new init script which only
starts xenstored (but also shuts it down on stop). Prevent this one to
be run on upgrade.
- d/xen-utils-common.xen.init:
* Add X-Start-Before/X-Stop-After dependencies on libvirt-bin
* Remove xenstored related code
* d/scripts/xen-init-list: Revert back to unmodified version from Debian.
With the ordering fixed, libvirt guests should be handled by its own
script before xendomains is run.
* d/control, d/libxen-dev.install and d/rules.real:
Add xenlight.pc and xlutil.pc to be packaged as part of libxen-dev in
multi-arch suitable location. Also declare libxen-dev as multi-arch
* Additional Security Patches:
- CVE-2016-2270 / XSA-154
* x86: enforce consistent cachability of MMIO mappings
- CVE-2016-1570 / XSA-167
* x86/mm: PV superpage handling lacks sanity checks
- CVE-2016-1571 / XSA-168
* x86/VMX: prevent INVVPID failure due to non-canonical guest address
- CVE-2015-8615 / XSA-169
* x86: make debug output consistent in hvm_set_callback_via
- CVE-2016-2271 / XSA-170
* x86/VMX: sanitize rIP before re-entering guest

- CVE-2015-8339, CVE-2015-8340 / XSA-159

* libxl: Fix bootloader-related virtual memory leak on pv
build failure
- CVE-2015-8555 / XSA-165

- CVE-2015-???? / XSA-166
* x86/HVM: avoid reading ioreq state more than once

xen (4.6.0-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=low
* Merge of Xen-4.6 from Debian. Remaining changes:
- debian/control, debian/rules.gen:
Generate transitional xen-hypervisor packages.
- debian/rules.real:
Install the grub.d config file.
- debian/scripts/xen-init-list:
Ignore libxl guests not created by the xl toolstack (e.g. libvirt).
- debian/tree/xen-utils-common/usr/share/xen-utils-common/default.xen:
Minor readability improvements (maybe get rid of those)
- debian/xen-hypervisor-4.6.xen.cfg:
Additional config file to simplify grub configuration.
- debian/xen-utils-4.6.postinst, debian/xen-utils-4.6.prerm:
Remove update-alternatives call.
- debian/xen-utils-common.xen.init:
Fix consoled_stop_real and additional code to start and attach a
qemu instance to dom0 (needed for pygrub booting QCOW2 PVM guests).
Note: Also contains a work-around for a kernel bug which should be
dropped in the next release.
- debian/patches/ubuntu-config-prefix-fix.patch:
Modifies configure and tools/configure to use the correct (versioned)
libexec path.
- Additional security fixes:
* XSA-156 / CVE-2015-5307
x86/HVM: always intercept #AC and #DB
