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 v4.4.16 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.

       git://git.kernel.org/

Does the trusty version (HWE) of the Xenial kernel automatically get added to this?

Bryan Quigley (bryanquigley) wrote :

@David, yes with few exceptions the kernel gets backported to Trusty HWE after it's released for Xenial. As an example, the 4.4.0-34 kernel was just released for Xenial and is also in Trusty as HWE already.
