Bug Description

== SRU Justification ==
Huawei servers, including Huawei PCIe SSD's require the hio driver which is currently not included in our kernels. We would like to carry this driver in our kernels for Xenial and newer in order to support platforms with these drives. This was original ported to Xenial and is now missing in Yakkety creating a regression in that release.

== Source ==
http://support.huawei.com/enterprisesearch/ebgSearch#sp.keyword=HUAWEI%20ES3000%20V2%20Driver%20SRC

== Testing ==
The reporter has hardware to test these kernels.

== Regression potential ==
The driver does not exist currently, so no regression potential exists in Yakkety. Upgrades from Xenial are currently regressing and will need to be tested.

---
The hio ubuntu driver in Xenial seems to be MIA in yakkety. Reported to us by Elmo.

Kernel-Description: hio Ubuntu sauce driver needs porting to 4.8

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-yakkety' to 'verification-done-yakkety'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
