* Note that the fixes for XSA-297 will only have effect when also loading
updated cpu microcode with MD_CLEAR functionality. When using the
intel-microcode package to include microcode in the dom0 initrd, it has to
be loaded by Xen. Please refer to the hypervisor command line
documentation about the 'ucode=scan' option.
* Fixes for XSA-295 "Unlimited Arm Atomics Operations" will be added in the
next upload.
