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 4.4.99 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 4.4.99 stable release shall be applied:
* mac80211: accept key reinstall without changing anything
* mac80211: use constant time comparison with keys
* mac80211: don't compare TKIP TX MIC key in reinstall prevention
* usb: usbtest: fix NULL pointer dereference
* Input: ims-psu - check if CDC union descriptor is sane
* ALSA: seq: Cancel pending autoload work at unbinding device
* tun/tap: sanitize TUNSETSNDBUF input
* tcp: fix tcp_mtu_probe() vs highest_sack
* l2tp: check ps->sock before running pppol2tp_session_ioctl()
* tun: call dev_get_valid_name() before register_netdevice()
* sctp: add the missing sock_owned_by_user check in sctp_icmp_redirect
* packet: avoid panic in packet_getsockopt()
* ipv6: flowlabel: do not leave opt->tot_len with garbage
* net/unix: don't show information about sockets from other namespaces
* ip6_gre: only increase err_count for some certain type icmpv6 in ip6gre_err
* tun: allow positive return values on dev_get_valid_name() call
* sctp: reset owner sk for data chunks on out queues when migrating a sock
* ppp: fix race in ppp device destruction
* ipip: only increase err_count for some certain type icmp in ipip_err
* tcp/dccp: fix ireq->opt races
* tcp/dccp: fix lockdep splat in inet_csk_route_req()
* tcp/dccp: fix other lockdep splats accessing ireq_opt
* security/keys: add CONFIG_KEYS_COMPAT to Kconfig
* tipc: fix link attribute propagation bug
* brcmfmac: remove setting IBSS mode when stopping AP
* target/iscsi: Fix iSCSI task reassignment handling
* target: Fix node_acl demo-mode + uncached dynamic shutdown regression
* misc: panel: properly restore atomic counter on error path
* Linux 4.4.99
