Bug Description

There have been a number of microreleases of PHP 7.0 upstream since the last update to Xenial (which corresponded to the merge in Yakkety). Ase we have re-merged again in Zesty, it feels appropriate to provide another MRE update to php7.0. A number of critical security and bug-fixes are present in each 7.0.x. Rather than backporting individual patches (e.g., Bug # 1569509), I believe it makes significantly more sense to follow the upstream 7.0.x. Upstream PHP is demonstrating an improved approach of bugfixes only in 7.0.x:

 - 7.0.15: http://php.net/ChangeLog-7.php

The upstream CI is at: https://travis-ci.org/php/php-src and is run regularly.

Our php7.0 source package has autopkgtests for the 4 SAPIs, mod-php, cgi, fpm and cli. We have also updated the packing to run the source tests during the build itself.

I do not believe there is a firm statement from upstream on API/ABI stability, but the general approach seems to be a BC-break would result in 7.1.0.

Additionally for this SRU, there is (at least) one bug fixed upstream that was specifically introduce by the prior SRU (to 7.0.13) which will be fixed by updating to a newer upstream version: LP: #1658289.

I have also discussed this on IRC with the security team for coordinating the next security update of php7.0.

Tested in containers upgrades from x and y to x-p and y-p. Both went fine. Tested sample scripts in both environments without regression.
