    This update for xen fixes several issues.

    These security issues were fixed:

    - CVE-2017-2620: In CIRRUS_BLTMODE_MEMSYSSRC mode the bitblit copy routine
    cirrus_bitblt_cputovideo failed to check the memory region, allowing for
    an out-of-bounds write that allows for privilege escalation
    - CVE-2017-2615: An error in the bitblt copy operation could have allowed
    a malicious guest administrator to cause an out of bounds memory access,
    possibly leading to information disclosure or privilege escalation
    - A malicious guest could have, by frequently rebooting over extended
    periods of time, run the host system out of memory, resulting in a
    Denial of Service (DoS) (bsc#1022871)
    - CVE-2016-9921: The Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support was vulnerable
    to a divide by zero issue while copying VGA data. A privileged user
    inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the process instance on
    the host, resulting in DoS (bsc#1015169

    These non-security issues were fixed:

    - bsc#1000195: Prevent panic on CPU0 while booting on SLES 11 SP3
    - bsc#1002496: Added support for reloading clvm in block-dmmd block-dmmd
