   This update for xen fixes the following issues:

   - CVE-2019-19581: Fixed a potential out of bounds on 32-bit Arm
     (bsc#1158003 XSA-307).
   - CVE-2019-19582: Fixed a potential infinite loop when x86 accesses to
     bitmaps with a compile time known size of 64 (bsc#1158003 XSA-307).
   - CVE-2019-19583: Fixed improper checks which could have allowed HVM/PVH
     guest userspace code to crash the guest,leading to a guest denial of
     service (bsc#1158004 XSA-308).
   - CVE-2019-19578: Fixed an issue where a malicious or buggy PV guest could
     have caused hypervisor crash resulting in denial of service affecting
     the entire host (bsc#1158005 XSA-309).
   - CVE-2019-19580: Fixed a privilege escalation where a malicious PV guest
     administrator could have been able to escalate their privilege to that
     of the host (bsc#1158006 XSA-310).
   - CVE-2019-19577: Fixed an issue where a malicious guest administrator
     could have caused Xen to access data structures while they are being
     modified leading to a crash (bsc#1158007 XSA-311).
   - CVE-2019-19579: Fixed a privilege escaltion where an untrusted domain
     with access to a physical device can DMA into host memory (bsc#1157888
   - CVE-2019-18423: A malicious guest administrator may cause a hypervisor
     crash, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) (bsc#1154460 XSA-301).
   - CVE-2019-18422: A malicious ARM guest might contrive to arrange for
     critical Xen code to run with interrupts erroneously enabled. This could
     lead to data corruption, denial of service, or possibly even privilege
     escalation. However a precise attack technique has not been identified.
