Log Message:
qemu: Update to 7.0.0

== System emulation ==

=== Incompatible changes ===

Consult the [ \ 
'Removed features' ] page for details of suggested replacement functionality

=== New deprecated options and features ===

Consult the [ \ 
"Deprecated Features"] chapter of the QEMU System Emulation User's \ 
Guide for further details of the deprecations and their suggested replacements.

Additional note: The QEMU project currently considers to drop the slirp \ 
submodule in future releases, i.e. the QEMU tarball won't embed the code for \ 
user mode networking in the future anymore, so that an external libslirp \ 
installation is required. Most OS distribution already ship a libslirp package \ 
nowadays (except for OpenBSD which is already known and hopefully will be fixed \ 
soon), but if you are still using another OS distribution that does not provide \ 
a libslirp package yet, please send a note to the \ 
[[Contribute/MailingLists|qemu-devel mailing list]] and ask your OS vendor to \ 
include such a package in the next release.

'virt-6.1', etc) because Linux kernels prior to v5.12 have a bug which means \ 
they will not boot on a CPU which has LPA2.)

machine types migration of acpi-index is broken and can't be fixed for \ 
compatibility reasons.

=== Block device backends and tools ===
* Fleecing backup has been made more flexible: Fleecing backup means exposing a \ 
temporary snapshot of an actively used image, and having the copy-before-write \ 
(CBW) filter (or historically the backup block job) copy data there from areas \ 
written by the guest to the active image, before they are overwritten, so that \ 
the snapshot keeps representing the point-in-time state of the disk when the \ 
snapshot was created.  This snapshot can then be read (either by qemu itself \ 
using the backup or mirror block jobs, or by outside users e.g. via an NBD \ 
export) to create a backup.  As of qemu 7.0, instead of reading the snapshot \ 
image directly, it can also be accessed through the new snapshot-access block \ 
driver, by installing such a node on top of the CBW filter.  Doing so has some \ 
advantages over accessing the snapshot image directly; for example, the image \ 
can then be in any format (not just COW formats like qcow2), because the CBW \ 
filter keeps track of its allocation bitmap.  Once an a
rea has been backed up, users can send a discard request to mark it as done, so \ 
that the CBW filter will not potentially copy it to the snapshot image on a \ 
subsequent guest write.  Furthermore, the CBW filter now has a bitmap parameter \ 
that allows limiting its scope as specified by the bitmap at the time the CBW \ 
filter node is created.
* A bug in caching block status has been fixed that was causing over-eager \ 
treatment of a format layer as all data rather than detecting holes, if an \ 
earlier block status query had merely been checking for which portions of the \ 
backing chain were allocated.  While the bug did not affect guest-visible data, \ 
it caused some performance regressions, particularly noticeable and easy to \ 
trigger when using 'qemu-nbd --allocation-depth'.
* The ''qemu-nbd'' program has gained a new ''--tls-hostname'' parameter to \ 
allow TLS validation against a different hostname, such as when setting up TLS \ 
through a TCP tunnel, and now supports TLS over Unix sockets.
* The SSH driver supports sha256 fingerprints with pre-blockdev command line \ 
configuration syntax.
* The SSH driver will print the actual fingerprint and its type when failing to \ 
validate a host key.

=== Tracing ===

=== Miscellaneous ===

* The -sandbox 'spawn' filter, will now correctly block use of the clone syscall \ 
for spawnnig processes, while allowing thread creation
* The -sandbox 'spawn' filter, will now entirely block use of the clone3 syscall \ 
entirely since there is no way to access its flags parameter from seccomp to \ 
distinguish thread vs process creation
* The -sandbox 'spawn' filter, will now block setns, unshare and execveat \ 
syscalls since they are not desired.

== User-mode emulation ==

* fixed a bug that caused issues mapping the ARM commpage on 32 bit builds

=== binfmt_misc ===

=== Hexagon ===

== TCG ==

User-mode emulation (linux-user, bsd-user) will enforce guest alignment \ 
constraints and raise SIGBUS to the guest program as appropriate.

=== ARM ===

Support for for ARMv4 and ARMv5 hosts has been dropped.  These older Arm \ 
versions do not have support for misaligned memory access; such support was \ 
added to ARMv6.  Since ARMv5 is quite old, it is presumed that such systems do \ 
not have sufficient RAM to even run QEMU, and so practically speaking no systems \ 
are impacted.

== Guest agent ==
* Support Windows 11 for <code>guest-get-osinfo</code> command
* Fix memory leaks in Windows <code>guest-get-fsinfo</code> command

== Build Information ==

=== Python ===

=== GIT submodules ===

=== Container Based Builds ===

* a large number of containers are now updated by lcitool
* TESTS and IMAGES environment variables can be used filter again when building \ 
against all docker targets

=== VM Based Builds ===

=== Build Dependencies ===
* xfs libraries are not needed anymore for build, since the only ioctl used by \ 
qemu which was defined there got local implementation.  With this, \ 
--enable-xfsctl configure option is also gone.

=== Windows ===

=== Testing and CI ===
