Also, of note -- Gentoo is absent from the pre-disclosure list.
We should work to have ourselves included in order to patch Gentoo Infrastructure early and be ready to release patched ebuilds immediately after CVEs are disclosed to the public.

+ revision bump, fix security bug 524200, 523524
Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords Both : "amd64 x86"
Target keywords Only: "amd64"
(note, those security bugs only relevant to app-emulation/xen
but we'd like to stablereq xen ebuild in one request, so combine them all here
and changes to xen-tools are quite trivial, xen-pvgrub in tree quite long)
sorry, should stabilize =app-emulation/xen-pvgrub-4.2.5, not (4.2.4)
You forgot to CC the arch teams. :)
Maintainer(s), please cleanup.
Security, please add it to the existing request, or file a new one.
The hvm_msr_read_intercept function in arch/x86/hvm/hvm.c in Xen 4.1 through
4.4.x uses an improper MSR range for x2APIC emulation, which allows local
HVM guests to cause a denial of service (host crash) or read data from the
hypervisor or other guests via unspecified vectors.
Arches, Thank you for your work
Maintainer(s), please drop the vulnerable version(s).
New GLSA Request filed.
thanks, old version has been dropped.
Maintainer(s), Thank you for cleanup!
