QEMU is a fast processor emulator: currently the package supports
ARM, CRIS, i386, M68k (ColdFire), MicroBlaze, MIPS, PowerPC, SH4,
SPARC and x86-64 emulation. By using dynamic translation it achieves
reasonable speed while being easy to port on new host CPUs.
This package provides extra block device backend modules for qemu-system
emulation and qemu-img from qemu-utils package, which are rarely used and
has extra dependencies.

qemu (1:2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu7) bionic; urgency=medium
* d/p/ubuntu/lp-1762854-*: fix issue with SCSI-2 devices denying Protection
information (LP: #1762854).
* d/p/ubuntu/lp-1763468-*: fix VSMT handling to fix ppc64el P8/P9 migration
(LP: #1763468).

qemu (1:2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu6) bionic; urgency=medium
* Remove LP: 1752026 changes to d/p/ubuntu/define-ubuntu-machine-types.patch.
The Kernel fixes are preferred and already committed to the kernel.
Therefore remove the default disabling of the HTM feature (LP: #1761175)
* d/p/ubuntu/lp1739665-SSE-AVX-AVX512-cpu-features.patch: Enable new
SSE/AVX/AVX512 cpu features (LP: #1739665)
* d/p/ubuntu/lp1740219-continuous-space-commpage.patch: make Arm
space+commpage continuous which avoids long startup times on
qemu-user-static (LP: #1740219)
* d/p/ubuntu/lp-1761372-*: provide pseries-bionic-2.11-sxxm type as
convenience with all meltdown/spectre workarounds enabled by default.
This is not the default type following upstream and x86 on that.
(LP: #1761372).
* d/p/ubuntu/lp-1704312-1-* provide means to manually handle filesystem-dax
with pmem by backporting align and unarmed options (LP: #1704312).
* d/p/ubuntu/lp-1762315-slirp-Add-domainname.patch: slirp: Add domainname
option to slirp's DHCP server (LP: #1762315)

qemu (1:2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu5) bionic; urgency=medium
* Revert the slirp changes of 1:2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu3 until they are upstream
accepted to be better long term maintainable (LP: #1753938)
2018-03-05 - Christian Ehrhardt <christian.ehrhardt@canonical.com>
qemu (1:2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu4) bionic; urgency=medium
* d/p/ubuntu/define-ubuntu-machine-types.patch: Disable HTM feature for
ppc64el in spapr to let the defaults not fail on Power9 HW (LP: #1752026).
* d/p/ubuntu/lp1753826-memfd-fix-configure-test.patch: fix FTBFS with newer
versions of glibc >=2.27 (LP: #1753826)

qemu (1:2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu3) bionic; urgency=medium
* d/p/ubuntu/0001-slirp-Add-domainname-option-to-slirp-s-DHCP-server.patch,
Add domainname option and classless static routes support to the user
networking's DHCP server

qemu (1:2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu2) bionic; urgency=medium
* d/p/ubuntu/qemu-stable-2.11.1.patch: add stable release
- among other fixes this adds code to:
- mitigate the Spectre/Meltdown attacks (LP: #1744882) (CVE-2017-5715)
However, enabling this functionality requires additional configuration
beyond just updating QEMU. Also migrations need special consideration.
Details about that can be found at:
- Power9 allocation of max 8 threads per core (LP: #1750526)
* Drop changes that are part of the upstream stable release
- d/p/ubuntu/linux-headers-update-to-4.15-rc1.patch
- d/p/ubuntu/linux-headers-update-4.15-rc9.patch
- d/p/ubuntu/lp1743560-s390x-kvm-Handle-bpb-feature.patch
- d/p/ubuntu/lp1743560-s390x-kvm-provide-stfle.81.patch
* d/p/ubuntu/define-ubuntu-machine-types.patch: refresh to match stable update
* d/p/ubuntu/pre-bionic-256k-ipxe-efi-roms.patch: unify to only change the
common compat.h header and add some extra info in the patch header.
