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



       The following patches from the 4.8.8 stable release shall be applied:

net: fec: set mac address unconditionally
net: pktgen: fix pkt_size
net/sched: act_vlan: Push skb->data to mac_header prior calling skb_vlan_*() functions
net: Add netdev all_adj_list refcnt propagation to fix panic
packet: call fanout_release, while UNREGISTERING a netdev
netlink: do not enter direct reclaim from netlink_dump()
drivers/ptp: Fix kernel memory disclosure
net_sched: reorder pernet ops and act ops registrations
ipv6: tcp: restore IP6CB for pktoptions skbs
net: phy: Trigger state machine on state change and not polling.
ip6_tunnel: fix ip6_tnl_lookup
ipv6: correctly add local routes when lo goes up
IB/ipoib: move back IB LL address into the hard header
net/mlx4_en: fixup xdp tx irq to match rx
net: pktgen: remove rcu locking in pktgen_change_name()
bridge: multicast: restore perm router ports on multicast enable
switchdev: Execute bridge ndos only for bridge ports
rtnetlink: Add rtnexthop offload flag to compare mask
net: core: Correctly iterate over lower adjacency list
net: add recursion limit to GRO
ipv4: disable BH in set_ping_group_range()
ipv4: use the right lock for ping_group_range
net: fec: Call swap_buffer() prior to IP header alignment
net: sctp, forbid negative length
sctp: fix the panic caused by route update
udp: fix IP_CHECKSUM handling
netvsc: fix incorrect receive checksum offloading
macsec: Fix header length if SCI is added if explicitly disabled
net: ipv6: Do not consider link state for nexthop validation
net sched filters: fix notification of filter delete with proper handle
sctp: validate chunk len before actually using it
ip6_tunnel: Update skb->protocol to ETH_P_IPV6 in ip6_tnl_xmit()
packet: on direct_xmit, limit tso and csum to supported devices
arch/powerpc: Update parameters for csum_tcpudp_magic & csum_tcpudp_nofold
usb: dwc3: gadget: properly account queued requests
scsi: megaraid_sas: Fix data integrity failure for JBOD (passthrough) devices
scsi: megaraid_sas: fix macro MEGASAS_IS_LOGICAL to avoid regression
