xen 4.6.0-1ubuntu4 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

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
    same.
  * 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

libxen-4.6: Public libs for Xen

 This package contains the shared toolstack libraries for Xen.

libxen-4.6-dbgsym: debug symbols for package libxen-4.6

 This package contains the shared toolstack libraries for Xen.

libxen-dev: Public headers and libs for Xen

 This package contains the public headers and static libraries for Xen.
 .
 The libxenlight library is intended as a common base for all Xen toolstack
 developers. The libxlutil library contains additional helpers which may
 be useful to toolstack developers.
 .
 The libxenstore library allows userspace processes to interact with the
 XenStore database. XenStore is a shared database used for interdomain
 communication of configuration and status information. It is accessible
 to all domains running on the same Xen host. See
 http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XenStore for more information.
 .
 The libxenctrl and libxenguest libraries are internal libraries intended
 for use by the Xen toolstack and are not intended to be used directly.
 Toolstack authors should use libxenlight.

libxenstore3.0: Xenstore communications library for Xen

 This package contains the client library interface to XenStore. .

xen-hypervisor-4.6-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.

xenstore-utils: Xenstore command line utilities for Xen

 This package contains command line utilities for interacting with
 XenStore.
 .
 XenStore is a shared database used for interdomain communication of
 configuration and status information. It is accessible to all domains
 running on the same Xen host. See http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XenStore for
 more information.
 .
 In the common case these tools are used by the Xen toolstack running in
 domain0 (or a driver domain) however they may also be used in a guest
 domain to support local scripting which wants to communicate via XenStore.
