Public bug reported:

System: Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS Alpha 2 installed within Citrix
XenServer 7.0.

Installed Citrix' 'guest-tools', confirmed on status page as having v7.0
tools working.

Ran 'apt update', 'apt dist-upgrade' and was offered 'xe-guest-
utilities' as one of the many packages being installed.  Cancelled the
upgrade to 'apt show' that package and found it to be v7.4.  Happy that
it was a newer version, started the upgrade && rebooted.

Upon booting, the status page revealed v6.6 was installed, surely a
backwards step and in spite of v7.4 having just been installed!

I then checked with Citrix and they're only up to XenServer 7.3!

All being said and done, the client tools allow interaction (ie,
XenCenter initiated clean shutdown and reboot* requests, virtual drivers
for Net and Blk front devices detected).  However, the versioning seems
awry.  Is having v6.6 on v7.0 going to have an impact on performance,
say for example, by using outdated APIs?

Looking forward to clarification on the subject.

Ubuntu and XenServer fanboi :-)
