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



The following patches from the 4.4.84 stable release shall be applied:
* audit: Fix use after free in audit_remove_watch_rule()
* parisc: pci memory bar assignment fails with 64bit kernels on dino/cujo
* crypto: x86/sha1 - Fix reads beyond the number of blocks passed
* Input: elan_i2c - add ELAN0608 to the ACPI table
* Input: elan_i2c - Add antoher Lenovo ACPI ID for upcoming Lenovo NB
* ALSA: seq: 2nd attempt at fixing race creating a queue
* ALSA: usb-audio: Apply sample rate quirk to Sennheiser headset
* ALSA: usb-audio: Add mute TLV for playback volumes on C-Media devices
* mm/mempolicy: fix use after free when calling get_mempolicy
* mm: revert x86_64 and arm64 ELF_ET_DYN_BASE base changes
* xen: fix bio vec merging
* x86/asm/64: Clear AC on NMI entries
* irqchip/atmel-aic: Fix unbalanced of_node_put() in aic_common_irq_fixup()
* irqchip/atmel-aic: Fix unbalanced refcount in aic_common_rtc_irq_fixup()
* Sanitize 'move_pages()' permission checks
* pids: make task_tgid_nr_ns() safe
* perf/x86: Fix LBR related crashes on Intel Atom
* usb: optimize acpi companion search for usb port devices
* usb: qmi_wwan: add D-Link DWM-222 device ID
* Linux 4.4.84

Skipped "netfilter: nf_ct_ext: fix possible panic after nf_ct_extend_unregister" because it was already applied for bug #1713729 Creating conntrack entry failure with kernel 4.4.0-89.

Adjusted file to patch of "perf/x86: Fix LBR related crashes on Intel Atom" to match changes introduced by bug #1559914 Disable multi-record PEBS on Merom. Patch did apply cleanly to new location.

Additionally had to revert "UBUNTU: SAUCE: (no-up) ALSA: usb-audio: Add quirk for sennheiser officerunner" which was applied for bug #1642572 because the same USB ID was now added by "ALSA: usb-audio: Apply sample rate quirk to Sennheiser headset".
