* SECURITY UPDATE: cache coherency problems in old Internet Explorer
  compatibility functions lead to loss of privacy and cache poisoning
  attacks. (LP: #1317663)
  - debian/patches/drop_fix_ie_for_vary_1_4.diff: remove fix_IE_for_vary()
    and fix_IE_for_attach() functions so Cache-Control and Vary headers are
