This update removes a misleading comment from the documentation of the abort function (#1615608). A minor security vulnerability, CVE-2018-11237, a buffer overflow in mempcpy for Xeon Phi (#1581275) has been addressed.

The update also fixes the waiters-after-spinning case in the pthread_cond_broadcast function (#1622669). Two bugs in the CPUID processing on x86 are also fixed (upstream bugs 23456 and 23459). The verification of vtables for stdio is improved (upstream bugs 23236 and 23313). A test case under a non-free license is removed (upstream bug 23363). The if_nametoindex now checks the length of interface names (upstream bug 22442). getifaddrs no longer returns interfaces with NULL names (upstream bug 23171). C++ compatibility of iseqsig has been improved (upstream bug 23171). A kernel header interaction issue related to struct timespec was addressed (upstream bug 23349).
