   An update that solves three vulnerabilities and has 6 fixes
   is now available.

Description:

   This update for xen fixes the following security issues:

   - blkif responses leaked backend stack data, which allowed unprivileged
     guest to obtain sensitive information from the host or other guests
     (XSA-216, bsc#1042863)
   - Page transfer might have allowed PV guest to elevate privilege (XSA-217,
     bsc#1042882)
   - Races in the grant table unmap code allowed for informations leaks and
     potentially privilege escalation (XSA-218, bsc#1042893)
   - Insufficient reference counts during shadow emulation allowed a
     malicious pair of guest to elevate their privileges to the privileges
     that XEN runs under (XSA-219, bsc#1042915)
   - Stale P2M mappings due to insufficient error checking allowed malicious
     guest to leak information or elevate privileges (XSA-222, bsc#1042931)
   - Grant table operations mishandled reference counts allowing malicious
     guests to escape (XSA-224, bsc#1042938)
   - CVE-2017-9330: USB OHCI Emulation in qemu allowed local guest OS users
     to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by leveraging an incorrect
     return value (bsc#1042160)
   - CVE-2017-8309: Memory leak in the audio/audio.c allowed remote attackers
     to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by repeatedly starting
     and stopping audio capture (bsc#1037243)
   - CVE-2017-8905: Xen a failsafe callback, which might have allowed PV
     guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the host OS (XSA-215,
     bsc#1034845).
