“xen” 4.2.2-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

xen (4.2.2-1ubuntu1) saucy; urgency=low

  * Merge with Debian unstable. Dropping the following patches in favour
    of Debian ones:
    - xsa52-4.2-unstable.patch
    - xsa53-4.2.patch
    - xsa54.patch
    - xsa56.patch
  * Remaining changes:
    - Use dpkg-buildflags and strip the gcc prefix for getting LDFLAGS.
      This will again use the Ubuntu specific LDFLAGS (using some
      hardening options). Older releases would always pass those options
      in the environment but that changed.
    - Ressurrect qemu-dm for now (upstream qemu would not support
      migration, yet). Forward-port some patches from the old Debian
      package which still included qemu-dm:
      - qemu-prefix (modify LDFLAGS to point to lib dir for qemu-dm)
      - qemu-disable-blktap (this is not present in upstream)
      - ubuntu-qemu-disable-qemu-upstream (breaks build and also should
        be provided by qemu/kvm package)
  * Remaining additional patches:
    - qemu-fix-librt-test.patch
      Fix build regression caused by glibc not requiring to link against
      librt for the clock_gettime function. Patch picked from xen-devel
      mailing list.
    - tools-gdbsx-fix-build-failure-with-glibc-2.17.patch
      Add direct include to sys/types.h for xg_main.c which likely was
      indirectly done before. Needed to get ulong type definition.
    - tools-ocaml-fix-build: refresh and reenable (and fix the description
      of) this patch.  Without it the ocam native libraries (*.cmxa)
      build in /build local paths rather than appropriatly versioned
      library references.
    - APIC Register Virtualization (backported from Xen 4.3)
      - 0001-xen-enable-APIC-Register-Virtualization.patch
      - 0002-xen-enable-Virtual-interrupt-delivery.patch
      - 0003-xen-add-virtual-x2apic-support-for-apicv.patch
    - TSC Adjust Support (backported from Xen 4.3)
      - 0004-x86-Implement-TSC-adjust-feature-for-HVM-guest.patch
      - 0005-x86-Save-restore-TSC-adjust-during-HVM-guest-migrati.patch
      - 0006-x86-Expose-TSC-adjust-to-HVM-guest.patch
    - Fix FTBS on i386
      - 0007-x86-Fix-i386-virtual-apic.patch
    - silence-gcc-warnings.patch: Silence gcc warnings.

xen-hypervisor-4.2-amd64: Xen Hypervisor on AMD64

 The hypervisor is the "core" for XEN itself. It gets booted by the boot
 loader and controls cpu and memory, sharing them between your
 administrative domain (Domain 0) and the virtual guest systems.
 .
 In order to boot a XEN system along with this package you also need a
 kernel specifically crafted to work as the Domain 0, mediating hardware
 access for XEN itself.

xen-hypervisor-4.2-i386: Xen Hypervisor on i386

 The hypervisor is the "core" for XEN itself. It gets booted by the boot
 loader and controls cpu and memory, sharing them between your
 administrative domain (Domain 0) and the virtual guest systems.
 .
 In order to boot a XEN system along with this package you also need a
 kernel specifically crafted to work as the Domain 0, mediating hardware
 access for XEN itself.
