[Xen-devel] [OSSTEST PATCH 0/4] Use snapshot for jessie-backports

Things are being removed from jessie-backports, which we rely on for
arm64 tests.  Switch to using snapshot.debian.org.

In my moderately-formal test, this has got as far as booting one of
the machines into Xen.  It's currently doing the guest install, which
I expect to be fine.

Impact on the Xen Project Massachusetts CI, and the Xen release:

This enables the new code in preseed_backports_packages when $suite is
jessie.  preseed_backports_packages has three call sites; two in
preseed_create_guest but only where $suite is wheezy or stretch, and
one in preseed_create in a call to di_special_kernel.

di_special_kernel looks for host flags like `need-kernel-deb-SUITE'
(and a compat case for wheezy).  In the Massachusetts osstest
instance, such flags are need-kernel-deb-jessie-backports (for the
laxtons) and need-kernel-deb-jessie-special (for a handful of x86
boxes).  But the call to preseed_backports_packages only triggers if
$kp eq 'backports', so only for the laxtons.

Accordingly, I have convinced myself that this code will only affect
arm64 in the Xen Project CI lab.

Ian Jackson (4):
  backports snapshot: Honour DebianSnapshotBackports_<suite> config var
  backports snapshot: Provide for $apt_insert and $extra_rune
  backports snapshot: Disable apt timestamp checking (sometimes)
  backports snapshot: Use 20190206T211314Z for jessie-backports
