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 v4.10.8 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 v4.10.8 stable release shall be applied:

xfrm: policy: init locks early
xfrm_user: validate XFRM_MSG_NEWAE XFRMA_REPLAY_ESN_VAL replay_window
xfrm_user: validate XFRM_MSG_NEWAE incoming ESN size harder
KVM: nVMX: Fix nested VPID vmx exec control
KVM: x86: cleanup the page tracking SRCU instance
virtio_balloon: init 1st buffer in stats vq
pinctrl: qcom: Don't clear status bit on irq_unmask
c6x/ptrace: Remove useless PTRACE_SETREGSET implementation
h8300/ptrace: Fix incorrect register transfer count
mips/ptrace: Preserve previous registers for short regset write
sparc/ptrace: Preserve previous registers for short regset write
metag/ptrace: Preserve previous registers for short regset write
metag/ptrace: Provide default TXSTATUS for short NT_PRSTATUS
metag/ptrace: Reject partial NT_METAG_RPIPE writes
qla2xxx: Allow vref count to timeout on vport delete.
sched/rt: Add a missing rescheduling point
usb: musb: fix possible spinlock deadlock
Linux 4.10.8
