Description:

   This update for salt fixes the following issues:

   - Avoid regression on "salt-master": set passphrase for salt-ssh keys to
     empty string (bsc#1178485)
   - Properly validate eauth credentials and tokens on SSH calls made by Salt
     API (bsc#1178319, bsc#1178362, bsc#1178361, CVE-2020-25592,
     CVE-2020-17490, CVE-2020-16846)
   - Fix disk.blkid to avoid unexpected keyword argument '__pub_user'.
     (bsc#1177867)
   - Ensure virt.update stop_on_reboot is updated with its default value.
   - Do not break package building for systemd OSes.
   - Drop wrong mock from chroot unit test.
   - Support systemd versions with dot. (bsc#1176294)
   - Fix for grains.test_core unit test.
   - Fix file/directory user and group ownership containing UTF-8 characters.
     (bsc#1176024)
   - Several changes to virtualization:
     * Fix virt update when cpu and memory are changed.
     * Memory Tuning GSoC.
     * Properly fix memory setting regression in virt.update.
     * Expose libvirt on_reboot in virt states.
   - Support transactional systems (MicroOS).
   - zypperpkg module ignores retcode 104 for search(). (bsc#1159670)
   - Xen disk fixes. No longer generates volumes for Xen disks, but the
     corresponding file or block disk. (bsc#1175987)
   - Invalidate file list cache when cache file modified time is in the
     future. (bsc#1176397)
   - Prevent import errors when running test_btrfs unit tests
