Bug Description

[Impact]

*** hwe-16.04 refresh for 16.04.3 ***

Revert changes to use debhelper10.

xorg-server-hwe-16.04 needs updates
- wayland 1.11 (but zesty has 1.12 which mesa needs so backport that)
- x11proto-core 7.0.31
- libxfont-dev 2.0.1, which also means backporting libxfont1 (NEW)

x-x-i-libinput will not replace -evdev in x-x-i-all-hwe-16.04 because the unity mouse config doesn't work with -libinput.
x-x-i-libinput needs newer libinput, which in turn needs libwacom update.

Mesa needs llvm-4.0 and libclc, libdrm, wayland updates.

[Test case]

upgrade from/to stock & old hwe stack, test desktop usage

[Regression potential]

zesty hasn't blown up

[Other information]

build order:
1. x11proto-core, libdrm, libxfont, libxfont1, libwacom, llvm-toolchain-4.0, vulkan, wayland
2. libclc, libinput, xorg-server (build-dep libxfont1-dev)
3. mesa, xorg-server-hwe-16.04
4. drivers
5. xorg-hwe-16.04

I'll modify the hwe-pkg scripts so that packages will still use debhelper9, so dropping the requirement of backporting dh-autoreconf/debhelper.

I don't think we should change around the libxfont and libxfont1 source packages in SRU; this would e.g. make it more confusing to try to do security updates of libxfont in xenial if necessary. It also doesn't look to me like the version bump from libxfont 1.5.1 to libxfont1 1.5.2 is justified under SRU policy.

I would prefer to see:
 - libxfont source SRU, renaming libxfont-dev to libxfont1-dev
 - libxfont2 introduced as a new source package, which can be the libxfont from artful with a source rename.

For now, rejecting these two uploads from the queue pending discussion.

An upload of libxfont to xenial-proposed has been rejected from the upload queue for the following reason: "libxfont1 vs. libxfont2 source layout to be discussed".

About Vulkan package:

Vulkan loader (libvulkan) has moved to newer version and that is needed to make use of all the recently proposed vulkan extensions in the application.

The main application that doesn't work currently is with Vulkan CTS: https://github.com/KhronosGroup/VK-GL-CTS

Vulkan CTS passing is required for a device to be called as Vulkan compatible.

We support only LTS releases on our devices so need latest version on 16.04. Can you please upgrade the libvulkan.so version to 1.0.42 for Xenial?

This version is already available for latest ubuntu version (17.04).

Thanks.
