Bug Description

MRE Justification:

Impact: Upstream Xen has released a stable update to 4.4.1 Since Trusty and Utopic are based on 4.4 it would be gaining us bug fixes without waiting for people to run into them. Like we do with upstream stable on the kernel.

Fix: Replaced the orig tarballs with the contents of the upstream stable release. Dropping patches we have picked up already.

Testing: Upstream automated tests and local half-automated testing (manual preparation of host).

The observed failures were analyzed and could not be linked to a regression in Xen. Based on that would declare testing passed successful for Utopic.

Hello Stefan, or anyone else affected,

Accepted xen into utopic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xen/4.4.1-0ubuntu0.14.10.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!

Testing with precise-proposed showed no problem when using xl directly or through the libvirt driver. Since I only test with PVM guests, I'll let someone else mark it as verified.

There are unlikely many to have proposed enabled generally. So based on the feedback of Simon (thanks!) and the regression testing I did, I am marking the verification as done,

Stefan did you test with the version of the package from the -proposed archive or did you use one you'd built locally?

Stefan Bader (smb) wrote :

Hi Brian, to be honest I used the locally built one. Though I locally build with sbuild with a proposed setup. And I take the same source package which I then upload. So I am quite confident those are functionally the same.

Stefan Bader (smb) wrote :

FWIW, I repeated the test for Utopic and Trusty with the binary packages from proposed with (unsurprisingly) the same results (no regression observed).

        Configure part fixed in Xen code. Duplicate defines for arm64 seem
        to be avoided by later libc, so need to keep that worked-around in
        Xen.
