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 4.4.121 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 4.4.121 stable release shall be
   applied:

   * Linux 4.4.121
   * btrfs: preserve i_mode if __btrfs_set_acl() fails
   * bpf, x64: implement retpoline for tail call

This patch modifies code from upstream's Spectre v1 implementation which we haven't pulled in yet (skipped in the update to 4.4.118: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1756866/comments/2)

It references array_index_nospec() which comes from upstream's Spectre v1 implementation.

Which fixes a Spectre v1 commit from upstream 4.4.118 which we haven't applied (yet).

Will skip over the "Revert "led: core: Fix brightness setting when setting delay_off=0"" because I did not pick up the introducing patch from 4.4.120.
