xen 4.3.0-1ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


xen (4.3.0-1ubuntu1) saucy; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
    - Add armhf to packages (except ocaml related) and create hypervisor
      and system-meta package. Modify build environment to produce Arm
      * debian/control
      * debian/rules.gen
      * debian/rules.real
      * debian/patches/ubuntu-tools-armhf-without-ocaml.patch
        Ocaml source fail to build on Arm.
    - Re-introduce xen-hypervisor-amd64 for i386 builds. Otherwise i386
      would be rendered uninstallable.
      * debian/arch/i386/defines
      * debian/control
    - Keep 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:
      * debian/patches/qemu-prefix.diff
        Modify LDFLAGS to point to lib dir for qemu-dm.
      * debian/patches/qemu-disable-blktap.diff
        Blktap never went upstream.
      * debian/patches/ubuntu-qemu-disable-qemu-upstream.diff
        We want to use the binary from qemu-system-x86.
      * debian/patches/ubuntu-qemu-upstream-location.patch
        Modify tools to look for qemu-system-i386 in public path.
    - Fixup hvmloader build to find the correct PXE boot roms.
      * ubuntu-tools-firmware-etherboot-kvm-ipxe.diff
    - Add packaging dependency on libxenstore to libxen (otherwise
      libtool fails to find references for libxenlight).
      * debian/rules.real
    - Add migration helper that removes private paths from xend domain
      * debian/scripts/Makefile
      * debian/scripts/xend-domain-config-path-strip
      * debian/xen-utils-common.postinst
    - Fix for using ulong instead of unsigned long in gdbsx.
      * debian/patches/toolchain.diff
  * First test for suitable toolstack in xendomains before using the list
    command as that causes the xapi daemon to hang.
    - debian/xen-utils-common.xendomains.init
