Debian Bug     : 929067

Vincent Tondellier reported that the qemu update issued as DSA 4454-1
did not correctly backport the support to define the md-clear bit to
allow mitigation of the MDS vulnerabilities. Updated qemu packages are
now available to correct this issue.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u7.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
