We would like to get your approval before uploading 1.5.9-1 to unstable.
Upstream has released a new stable release in the 1.5 branch, containing 
important bugfixes and a minor new feature. The bugfixes (sorted by 
severity) are:

 - BUG/MAJOR: frontend: initialize capture pointers earlier
 - BUG/MAJOR: sessions: unlink session from list on out of memory
 - BUG/MEDIUM: checks: fix conflicts between agent checks and ssl healthchecks
 - BUG/MEDIUM: connection: sanitize PPv2 header length before parsing
               address information
 - BUG/MEDIUM: pattern: don't load more than once a pattern list.
 - BUG/MEDIUM: ssl: fix bad ssl context init can cause segfault in case of OOM.
 - BUG/MEDIUM: ssl: force a full GC in case of memory shortage
 - BUG/MINOR: config: don't inherit the default balance algorithm in frontends
 - BUG/MINOR: peers: the buffer size is global.tune.bufsize, not trash.size
 - BUG/MINOR: samples: fix unnecessary memcopy converting binary to string.
 - BUG/MINOR: stats: correctly set the request/response analysers
 - BUILD: fix "make install" to support spaces in the install dirs
 - DOC: fix typo in the body parser documentation for msg.sov

The first major bugfix fixes a segfault when haproxy is used in TCP mode 
and payload inspection is performed, as reported in


The other major bugfix fixes a potential memory corruption under memory 

The only new feature is adding access to three internal variables (the 
number of processes, the process number and whether a process is
shutting down) that can be used for logging and debugging purposes.

The full changes against 1.5.8-1 are attached as a debdiff.
