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

       git://git.kernel.org/

The patch "block: get rid of blk_integrity_revalidate()" had to be adjusted due to having "block: Use pointer to backing_dev_info from request_queue" backported for bug #1659111 "UbuntuKVM guest crashed while running I/O stress test with Ubuntu kernel 4.4.0-47-generic".
