Import patches-unapplied version 1:7.7p1-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: a2553f9afcc1c96e1ac72bf09c510e41fee40f2b

New changelog entries:
  * New upstream release (https://www.openssh.com/txt/release-7.7):
    - ssh(1)/sshd(8): Drop compatibility support for some very old SSH
      implementations, including ssh.com <=2.* and OpenSSH <= 3.*. These
      versions were all released in or before 2001 and predate the final SSH
      RFCs. The support in question isn't necessary for RFC-compliant SSH
    - Add experimental support for PQC XMSS keys (Extended Hash-Based
    - sshd(8): Add an "rdomain" criterion for the sshd_config Match keyword
      to allow conditional configuration that depends on which routing
      domain a connection was received on.
    - sshd_config(5): Add an optional rdomain qualifier to the ListenAddress
      directive to allow listening on different routing domains.
    - sshd(8): Add "expiry-time" option for authorized_keys files to allow
      for expiring keys.
    - ssh(1): Add a BindInterface option to allow binding the outgoing
      connection to an interface's address (basically a more usable
      BindAddress; closes: #289592).
    - ssh(1): Expose device allocated for tun/tap forwarding via a new %T
      expansion for LocalCommand. This allows LocalCommand to be used to
      prepare the interface.
    - sshd(8): Expose the device allocated for tun/tap forwarding via a new
      SSH_TUNNEL environment variable. This allows automatic setup of the
      interface and surrounding network configuration automatically on the
    - ssh(1)/scp(1)/sftp(1): Add URI support to ssh, sftp and scp, e.g.
      ssh://user@host or sftp://user@host/path. Additional connection
      parameters described in draft-ietf-secsh-scp-sftp-ssh-uri-04 are not
      implemented since the ssh fingerprint format in the draft uses the
      deprecated MD5 hash with no way to specify any other algorithm.
    - ssh-keygen(1): Allow certificate validity intervals that specify only
      a start or stop time (instead of both or neither).
    - sftp(1): Allow "cd" and "lcd" commands with no explicit path argument.
      lcd will change to the local user's home directory as usual. cd will
      change to the starting directory for session (because the protocol
      offers no way to obtain the remote user's home directory).
    - sshd(8): When doing a config test with sshd -T, only require the
      attributes that are actually used in Match criteria rather than (an
      incomplete list of) all criteria.
    - ssh(1)/sshd(8): More strictly check signature types during key
      exchange against what was negotiated. Prevents downgrade of RSA
      signatures made with SHA-256/512 to SHA-1.
    - sshd(8): Fix support for client that advertise a protocol version of
      "1.99" (indicating that they are prepared to accept both SSHv1 and
      SSHv2). This was broken in OpenSSH 7.6 during the removal of SSHv1
    - ssh(1): Warn when the agent returns a ssh-rsa (SHA1) signature when a
      rsa-sha2-256/512 signature was requested. This condition is possible
      when an old or non-OpenSSH agent is in use.
    - ssh-agent(1): Fix regression introduced in 7.6 that caused ssh-agent
      to fatally exit if presented an invalid signature request message.
    - sshd_config(5): Accept yes/no flag options case-insensitively, as has
      been the case in ssh_config(5) for a long time (LP: #1656557).
    - ssh(1): Improve error reporting for failures during connection. Under
      some circumstances misleading errors were being shown.
    - ssh-keyscan(1): Add -D option to allow printing of results directly in
      SSHFP format.
    - ssh(1): Compatibility fix for some servers that erroneously drop the
      connection when the IUTF8 (RFC8160) option is sent.
    - scp(1): Disable RemoteCommand and RequestTTY in the ssh session
      started by scp (sftp was already doing this).
    - ssh-keygen(1): Refuse to create a certificate with an unusable number
      of principals.
    - ssh-keygen(1): Fatally exit if ssh-keygen is unable to write all the
      public key during key generation. Previously it would silently ignore
      errors writing the comment and terminating newline.
    - ssh(1): Do not modify hostname arguments that are addresses by
      automatically forcing them to lower-case. Instead canonicalise them
      jo resolve ambiguities (e.g. ::0001 => ::1) before they are matched
      against known_hosts.
    - ssh(1): Don't accept junk after "yes" or "no" responses to hostkey
    - sftp(1): Have sftp print a warning about shell cleanliness when
      decoding the first packet fails, which is usually caused by shells
      polluting stdout of non-interactive startups.
    - ssh(1)/sshd(8): Switch timers in packet code from using wall-clock
      time to monotonic time, allowing the packet layer to better function
      over a clock step and avoiding possible integer overflows during
    - sshd(8): Correctly detect MIPS ABI in use at configure time. Fixes
      sandbox violations on some environments.
    - Build and link with "retpoline" flags when available to mitigate the
      "branch target injection" style (variant 2) of the Spectre
      branch-prediction vulnerability.

Import patches-unapplied version 1:7.6p1-3 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: cd4c51854e4ddae4296398eadca6f712435f57a8

New changelog entries:
  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Remove the decade-old ssh-krb5 transitional package; upgrades of
    openssh-server will preserve existing configuration, and new
    installations should just enable GSSAPIAuthentication and
    GSSAPIKeyExchange in sshd_config (closes: #878626).
  * Support the "noudeb" build profile.
  * Fix putty-transfer regression test.
  [ Anders Kaseorg ]
  * debian/systemd/ssh-agent.service: Add missing dbus dependency.
  [ Jason Duerstock ]
  * Add a "pkg.openssh.nognome" build profile, which disables building the
    ssh-askpass-gnome binary package and avoids the build-dependency on
    libgtk-3-dev (closes: #883819).
