* Update from upstream stable branch:
- Fix PowerPC sqrt inaccuracy.  Closes: #855606.
* patches/any/cvs-resolv-internal-qtype.diff: patch from upstream to fix a
NULL pointer dereference in libresolv when receiving a T_UNSPEC internal
QTYPE (CVE-2015-5180).  Closes: #796106.

* Update from upstream stable branch:
- Do not unconditionally use the fsqrt instruction on 64-bit PowerPC
CPUs.  Closes: #843904.
* debian/patches/any/cvs-hesiod-resolver.diff: patch from upstream to
fix a regression introduced by cvs-resolv-ipv6-nameservers.diff in
hesiod.  Closes: #821358.
* debian/sysdeps/{amd64,i386,x32}.mk: disable lock elision (aka Intel TSX)
on x86 architectures. This causes programs (wrongly) unlocking an already
unlocked mutex to abort. More importantly most of the other distributions
decided to disable it, so we don't want to be the only distribution left
testing this code path.
