Import patches-unapplied version 9.1.9-2 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: a98d961891b2e713149ed83309eb7f221f1521a9

New changelog entries:
  * debian/copyright: Fix syntax errors.
  * debian/rules: Build with -fno-aggressive-loop-optimizations with gcc 4.8
    to avoid generating bad code due to the broken usage of variable-length
    arrays. This is fixed properly in 9.2, but the patch does not backport
    well. (Closes: #701340)

a98d961... by Martin Pitt on 2013-04-02

Import patches-unapplied version 9.1.9-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 71503c22d6ddcca4f27404a5ad4f5def1f0ca2ea

New changelog entries:
  * Urgency high because of critical remote data destruction vulnerability.
  * New upstream security/bug fix release:
    - Fix insecure parsing of server command-line switches.
      A connection request containing a database name that begins with
      "-" could be crafted to damage or destroy files within the server's
      data directory, even if the request is eventually rejected.
      [CVE-2013-1899] (Closes: #704479)
    - Reset OpenSSL randomness state in each postmaster child process.
      This avoids a scenario wherein random numbers generated by
      "contrib/pgcrypto" functions might be relatively easy for another
      database user to guess. The risk is only significant when the
      postmaster is configured with ssl = on but most connections don't
      use SSL encryption. [CVE-2013-1900]
    - Make REPLICATION privilege checks test current user not
      authenticated user.
      An unprivileged database user could exploit this mistake to call
      pg_start_backup() or pg_stop_backup(), thus possibly interfering
      with creation of routine backups. [CVE-2013-1901]
    - Fix GiST indexes to not use "fuzzy" geometric comparisons when it's
      not appropriate to do so.
      The core geometric types perform comparisons using "fuzzy"
      equality, but gist_box_same must do exact comparisons, else GiST
      indexes using it might become inconsistent. After installing this
      update, users should "REINDEX" any GiST indexes on box, polygon,
      circle, or point columns, since all of these use gist_box_same.
    - Fix erroneous range-union and penalty logic in GiST indexes that
      use "contrib/btree_gist" for variable-width data types, that is
      text, bytea, bit, and numeric columns.
      These errors could result in inconsistent indexes in which some
      keys that are present would not be found by searches, and also in
      useless index bloat. Users are advised to "REINDEX" such indexes
      after installing this update.
    - Fix bugs in GiST page splitting code for multi-column indexes.
      These errors could result in inconsistent indexes in which some
      keys that are present would not be found by searches, and also in
      indexes that are unnecessarily inefficient to search. Users are
      advised to "REINDEX" multi-column GiST indexes after installing
      this update.
    - See HISTORY/changelog.gz for details about the other bug fixes.
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4 (no changes necessary).

71503c2... by Christoph Berg on 2013-02-05

Import patches-unapplied version 9.1.8-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 7baec73e050dd586f17454e0fb77b39175af602e

New changelog entries:
  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Add autopkgtest, moved from postgresql-common.
  * debian/rules: Only build the error codes and the plpython subtree for the
    "python3" flavor, to cut down build time.
  * Add missing docbook build dependency. (Closes: #697618)
  [ Christoph Berg ]
  * New upstream version.
    + Prevent execution of enum_recv from SQL
      The function was misdeclared, allowing a simple SQL command to crash the
      server. In principle an attacker might be able to use it to examine the
      contents of server memory. Our thanks to Sumit Soni (via Secunia SVCRP)
      for reporting this issue. (CVE-2013-0255)

77a0950... by Martin Pitt on 2012-09-25

Import patches-unapplied version 9.1.6-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: b404f5e5ee200f4d50e8472402294e58449b7f32

New changelog entries:
  * Urgency medium because of data loss bug fix.
  * New upstream bug fix release:
    - Fix persistence marking of shared buffers during WAL replay.
      This mistake can result in buffers not being written out during
      checkpoints, resulting in data corruption if the server later
      crashes without ever having written those buffers. Corruption can
      occur on any server following crash recovery, but it is
      significantly more likely to occur on standby slave servers since
      those perform much more WAL replay. There is a low probability of
      corruption of btree and GIN indexes. There is a much higher
      probability of corruption of table "visibility maps". Fortunately,
      visibility maps are non-critical data in 9.1, so the worst
      consequence of such corruption in 9.1 installations is transient
      inefficiency of vacuuming. Table data proper cannot be corrupted by
      this bug.
      While no index corruption due to this bug is known to have occurred
      in the field, as a precautionary measure it is recommended that
      production installations "REINDEX" all btree and GIN indexes at a
      convenient time after upgrading to 9.1.6.
      Also, if you intend to do an in-place upgrade to 9.2.X, before
      doing so it is recommended to perform a "VACUUM" of all tables
      while having vacuum_freeze_table_age set to zero. This will ensure
      that any lingering wrong data in the visibility maps is corrected
      before 9.2.X can depend on it. vacuum_cost_delay can be adjusted to
      reduce the performance impact of vacuuming, while causing it to
      take longer to finish.
    - See HISTORY/changelog.gz for the other bug fixes.
  * debian/rules: Compress all binaries with xz. Thanks Cyril Brulebois!
    (Closes: #688678)

Import patches-unapplied version 9.1.5-2 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: a44fbcdbe74eef418b36220922101b7532cf815f

New changelog entries:
  * debian/rules: Re-enable hardening functions (regression from 9.1.3-2 when
    hardening-wrapper is not installed). Use "hardening=all", but disable
    "pie" (as that's not compatible with -fPIC) and add -pie to CFLAGS
    explicitly. Also drop the explicit "-Wl,-z,now" linker option, as this is
    now implied with "all". (LP: #1039618)
  * Fix upgrades from older 9.1 releases in stable Ubuntu -updates/-security
    releasese. The strict "<< 9.1.4-2~" check for moving pg_basebackup.1.gz is
    not sufficient, as Ubuntu stables have newer upstream releases by now.
    - debian/control: Move Breaks/Replaces: from static version to
    - debian/postgresql-9.1.preinst: Also fix the alternatives when upgrading
      from a -0something version.
    - (LP: #1043449)
