Before the next Yocto release, Xen recipes need to be updated.
This patch series:
- updates 4.15 recipes
- introduces 4.16 recipes
- removes 4.14 recipes
FYI: I'm not ignoring these, and I will make sure they get into the
upcoming release branch and are in place for the LTS release. I'm just
waiting until Christopher gets a chance to review and see if these
match up with what he was thinking about for versions.

For LTS, I think we said the strategy should be a bit different:
- keep the original versions and update them.
- keep the same default version
- add/update other recipe upon request
My fault for not being clear, I was thinking about "the upcoming LTS",
aka the very-soon to be released kirstone .. but just typed "LTS",
which is no longer unambiguous!

Unless you were also speaking about kirstone .. :)

For dunfell-LTS, we definitely don't need to add new versions, but I'm
happy to do updates.

For Kirstone LTS, I just wanted to make sure that we had the right Xen
versions, where at least one is also a Xen LTS and another version to
track a latest release (for those that need it).

I think we are aligned on both fronts.


I do not think we need to push this change to LTS branch, there it might make more sense to update the present versions.
I can check that in the next weeks.

xen: Bump SRCREV of 4.15 recipes to 4.15.2
