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 4.4.119 upstream
   stable 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 4.4.119 stable release shall be
   applied:

   * Linux 4.4.119
   * binder: add missing binder_unlock()
   * drm/amdgpu: Avoid leaking PM domain on driver unbind (v2)
   * usb: renesas_usbhs: missed the "running" flag in usb_dmac with rx path
   * usb: gadget: f_fs: Process all descriptors during bind
   * usb: ldusb: add PIDs for new CASSY devices supported by this driver
   * usb: dwc3: gadget: Set maxpacket size for ep0 IN
   * drm/edid: Add 6 bpc quirk for CPT panel in Asus UX303LA
   * Add delay-init quirk for Corsair K70 RGB keyboards
   * arm64: Disable unhandled signal log messages by default
   * usb: ohci: Proper handling of ed_rm_list to handle race condition between usb_kill_urb() and finish_unlinks()
   * irqchip/gic-v3: Use wmb() instead of smb_wmb() in gic_raise_softirq()
   * x86/oprofile: Fix bogus GCC-8 warning in nmi_setup()
   * iio: adis_lib: Initialize trigger before requesting interrupt
   * iio: buffer: check if a buffer has been set up when poll is called
   * cfg80211: fix cfg80211_beacon_dup
   * scsi: ibmvfc: fix misdefined reserved field in ibmvfc_fcp_rsp_info
   * ip_tunnel: fix preempt warning in ip tunnel creation/updating
   * ip_tunnel: replace dst_cache with generic implementation
   * PCI: keystone: Fix interrupt-controller-node lookup
   * powerpc/64s: Fix RFI flush dependency on HARDLOCKUP_DETECTOR
   * netfilter: drop outermost socket lock in getsockopt()
