This update for go1.15 fixes the following issues :

go1.15.5 (released 2020-11-12) includes security fixes to the cmd/go and math/big packages.

- go#42553 math/big: panic during recursive division of very large numbers (bsc#1178750 CVE-2020-28362)

- go#42560 cmd/go: arbitrary code can be injected into cgo generated files (bsc#1178752 CVE-2020-28367)

- go#42557 cmd/go: improper validation of cgo flags can lead to remote code execution at build time (bsc#1178753 CVE-2020-28366)

- go#42169 cmd/compile, runtime, reflect: pointers to go:notinheap types must be stored indirectly in interfaces

- go#42151 cmd/cgo: opaque struct pointers are broken since Go 1.15.3

- go#42138 time: Location interprets wrong timezone (DST) with slim zoneinfo

- go#42113 x/net/http2: the first write error on a connection will cause all subsequent write requests to fail blindly

- go#41914 net/http: request.Clone doesn't deep copy TransferEncoding

- go#41704 runtime: macOS syscall.Exec can get SIGILL due to preemption signal

- go#41463 compress/flate: deflatefast produces corrupted output

- go#41387 x/net/http2: connection-level flow control not returned if stream errors, causes server hang

- go#40974 cmd/link: sectionForAddress(0xA9D67F) address not in any section file
