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 4.4.126 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 4.4.126 stable release shall be
   applied:

   * Linux 4.4.126
   * net: systemport: Rewrite __bcm_sysport_tx_reclaim()
   * net: fec: Fix unbalanced PM runtime calls
   * ieee802154: 6lowpan: fix possible NULL deref in lowpan_device_event()
   * s390/qeth: on channel error, reject further cmd requests
   * s390/qeth: lock read device while queueing next buffer
   * s390/qeth: when thread completes, wake up all waiters
   * s390/qeth: free netdevice when removing a card
   * team: Fix double free in error path
   * skbuff: Fix not waking applications when errors are enqueued
   * net: Only honor ifindex in IP_PKTINFO if non-0
   * netlink: avoid a double skb free in genlmsg_mcast()
   * net/iucv: Free memory obtained by kzalloc
   * net: ethernet: ti: cpsw: add check for in-band mode setting with RGMII PHY interface
   * net: ethernet: arc: Fix a potential memory leak if an optional regulator is deferred
   * l2tp: do not accept arbitrary sockets
   * ipv6: fix access to non-linear packet in ndisc_fill_redirect_hdr_option()
   * dccp: check sk for closed state in dccp_sendmsg()
   * net: Fix hlist corruptions in inet_evict_bucket()
   * Revert "genirq: Use irqd_get_trigger_type to compare the trigger type for shared IRQs"
   * scsi: sg: don't return bogus Sg_requests
