* SECURITY UPDATE: Information exposure via unencrypted swap partitions. The
swap partition was not configured to use encryption when GPT partitioning
was in use on NVMe and MMC drives.
- debian/patches/CVE-2016-6224.patch: Properly handle the formatting of
the path to swap partitions on NVMe and MMC drives so that they're
correctly marked as not to be automatically mounted by systemd. Based on
upstream patch from Jason Gerard DeRose. (LP: #1597154)
- debian/ecryptfs-utils.postinst: Fix any unencrypted GPT swap partitions
that have mistakenly remained marked as auto mount. This should only
modify the swap partitions on systems that ecryptfs-setup-swap has been
used on. (LP: #1447282, LP: #1597154)

* src/utils/ecryptfs-setup-private: LP: #1328689
- fix a long standing bug, where setting up an encrypted private,
encrypted home, or migrating to an encrypted home did not work
correctly over ssh sessions
- the root cause of the bug is some complexity in the handling of
user keyrings and session keyrings
- the long term solution would be to correctly use session keyrings
- the short term solution is to continue linking user and session

[ Tyler Hicks ]
* Remove unnecessary dependencies in the Debian packaging (LP: #1548975)
- debian/control: Remove opencryptoki from ecryptfs-utils
Suggests and libopencryptoki-dev from libecryptfs-dev Depends as
openCryptoki is not a dependency of eCryptfs.
- debian/rules: Remove openCryptoki related logic since it was not being
used and is no longer needed
- debian/control: Remove libtspi-dev from libecryptfs-dev Depends since
--disable-tspi is passed to the configure script
- debian/control: Remove libpkcs11-helper1-dev from libecryptfs-dev
Depends since --disable-pkcs11-helper is passed to the configure script
- debian/control: Remove libgpg-error-dev and libgpgme11-dev from
libecryptfs-dev Depends since --disable-gpg is passed to the configure
- debian/control: Remove libgcrypt11-dev from Build-Depends and
libecryptfs-dev Depends since --enable-nss is passed to the configure
script to use NSS instead of Libgcrypt
- debian/control: Remove libkeyutils-dev and libpam0g-dev from
libecryptfs-dev Depends since these are build-time dependencies and not
run-time dependencies
