Bug Description

SRU Justification

    Impact:
       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 v4.4.15 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.

       git://git.kernel.org/

    TEST CASE: TBD

       The following patches from the v4.4.15 stable release shall be applied:

qeth: delete napi struct when removing a qeth device
net_sched: fix pfifo_head_drop behavior vs backlog
net: Don't forget pr_fmt on net_dbg_ratelimited for CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG
sit: correct IP protocol used in ipip6_err
esp: Fix ESN generation under UDP encapsulation
netem: fix a use after free
ipmr/ip6mr: Initialize the last assert time of mfc entries.
Bridge: Fix ipv6 mc snooping if bridge has no ipv6 address
sock_diag: do not broadcast raw socket destruction
bpf, perf: delay release of BPF prog after grace period
neigh: Explicitly declare RCU-bh read side critical section in neigh_xmit()
net: macb: fix default configuration for GMAC on AT91
net: alx: Work around the DMA RX overflow issue
bpf: try harder on clones when writing into skb
AX.25: Close socket connection on session completion
crypto: ux500 - memmove the right size
crypto: user - re-add size check for CRYPTO_MSG_GETALG
USB: uas: Fix slave queue_depth not being set
usb: quirks: Fix sorting
usb: quirks: Add no-lpm quirk for Acer C120 LED Projector
usb: musb: only restore devctl when session was set in backup
usb: musb: Stop bulk endpoint while queue is rotated
usb: musb: Ensure rx reinit occurs for shared_fifo endpoints
usb: musb: host: correct cppi dma channel for isoch transfer
usb: xhci-plat: properly handle probe deferral for devm_clk_get()
USB: xhci: Add broken streams quirk for Frescologic device id 1009
xhci: Fix handling timeouted commands on hosts in weird states.
USB: mos7720: delete parport
usb: gadget: fix spinlock dead lock in gadgetfs
usb: host: ehci-tegra: Grab the correct UTMI pads reset
usb: dwc3: exynos: Fix deferred probing storm.

Can someone clarify whether the ubuntu mainstream kernel site includes the patches. From 4.4.14 I had problems logging in (ecryptfs issues I think). Then it the mainline server listed patches. Now with 4.4.15 the kernel is listed again with patches to apply. I've never encountered this before. Are we supposed to compile them ourselves with patches applied now. Still using 4.4.13 until I understand the changes to the website.
