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 4.4.125 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 4.4.125 stable release shall be
   applied:

   * Linux 4.4.125
   * bpf, x64: increase number of passes
   * bpf: skip unnecessary capability check
   * kbuild: disable clang's default use of -fmerge-all-constants
