Hi Jan,

Are you still entertaining backports for 4.8.x?
Also, are we interested in being able to build 4.8.x with newer gcc?

If so, the following for xen 4.8.x:
f49fa658    tools:misc:xenlockprof: fix possible format string overflow
796dea37    tools: include sys/sysmacros.h on Linux
7dc15bd7    tools: fix several "format-truncation" warnings with GCC 7

And the following for qemu-xen 4.8.x:
6511713c    memfd: fix configure test
e05274ac    blkdebug: Catch bs->exact_filename overflow
2d4685f6    blkverify: Catch bs->exact_filename overflow
c089583e    usb: Fix build with newer gcc
e8044943    slirp/smb: Replace constant strings by glib string

I tested these on staging-4.8, built for aarch64.
If the answer to either of the questions above is "no" then please disregard.
