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 4.4.111 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 4.4.111 stable release shall be applied:
* x86/kasan: Write protect kasan zero shadow
* kernel/acct.c: fix the acct->needcheck check in check_free_space()
* crypto: n2 - cure use after free
* crypto: chacha20poly1305 - validate the digest size
* crypto: pcrypt - fix freeing pcrypt instances
* sunxi-rsb: Include OF based modalias in device uevent
* fscache: Fix the default for fscache_maybe_release_page()
* kernel: make groups_sort calling a responsibility group_info allocators
* kernel/signal.c: protect the traced SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE tasks from SIGKILL
* kernel/signal.c: protect the SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE tasks from !sig_kernel_only() signals
* kernel/signal.c: remove the no longer needed SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE check in complete_signal()
* ARC: uaccess: dont use "l" gcc inline asm constraint modifier
* Input: elantech - add new icbody type 15
* x86/microcode/AMD: Add support for fam17h microcode loading
* parisc: Fix alignment of pa_tlb_lock in assembly on 32-bit SMP kernel
* x86/tlb: Drop the _GPL from the cpu_tlbstate export
* genksyms: Handle string literals with spaces in reference files
* module: keep percpu symbols in module's symtab
* module: Issue warnings when tainting kernel
* proc: much faster /proc/vmstat
* Map the vsyscall page with _PAGE_USER
* Fix build error in vma.c
* Linux 4.4.111
