   An update that solves 10 vulnerabilities and has two fixes
   is now available.

Description:

   This update for xen fixes several issues.

   These security issues were fixed:

   - CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5754: Prevent information leaks
     via side effects of speculative execution, aka "Spectre" and "Meltdown"
     attacks (bsc#1074562, bsc#1068032)
   - CVE-2017-15595: x86 PV guest OS users were able to cause a DoS
     (unbounded recursion, stack consumption, and hypervisor crash) or
     possibly gain privileges via crafted page-table stacking (bsc#1061081)
   - CVE-2017-17566: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service
     (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges in shadow mode by mapping a
     certain auxiliary page (bsc#1070158).
   - CVE-2017-17563: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service
     (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging an incorrect
     mask for reference-count overflow checking in shadow mode (bsc#1070159).
   - CVE-2017-17564: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service
     (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect error
     handling for reference counting in shadow mode (bsc#1070160).
   - CVE-2017-17565: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service
     (host OS crash) if shadow mode and log-dirty mode are in place, because
     of an incorrect assertion related to M2P (bsc#1070163).
   - CVE-2018-5683: The vga_draw_text function allowed local OS guest
     privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and
     QEMU process crash) by leveraging improper memory address validation
     (bsc#1076116).
   - CVE-2017-18030: The cirrus_invalidate_region function allowed local OS
     guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array
     access and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to negative pitch
     (bsc#1076180).

   These non-security issues were fixed:

   - bsc#1051729: Prevent invalid symlinks after install of SLES 12 SP2
   - bsc#1035442: Increased the value of LIBXL_DESTROY_TIMEOUT from 10 to 100
     seconds. If many domUs shutdown in parallel the backends couldn't keep up
   - bsc#1027519: Added several upstream patches
