Bug Description

SRU Justification

       The upstream process for stable tree updates is quite similar
       in scope to the Ubuntu SRU process, e.g., each patch has to
       demonstrably fix a bug, and each patch is vetted by upstream
       by originating either directly from a mainline/stable Linux tree or
       a minimally backported form of that patch. The v3.19.8-ckt20 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.



       The following patches from the v3.19.8-ckt20 stable release shall be applied:
