Bug Description

SRU Justification

       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 v4.18.5 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.



       The following patches from the v4.18.5 stable release shall be applied:

EDAC: Add missing MEM_LRDDR4 entry in edac_mem_types[]
mm: Allow non-direct-map arguments to free_reserved_area()
x86/mm/init: Pass unconverted symbol addresses to free_init_pages()
x86/mm/init: Add helper for freeing kernel image pages
x86/mm/init: Remove freed kernel image areas from alias mapping
powerpc64s: Show ori31 availability in spectre_v1 sysfs file not v2
ext4: fix spectre gadget in ext4_mb_regular_allocator()
drm/i915/kvmgt: Fix potential Spectre v1
drm/amdgpu/pm: Fix potential Spectre v1
parisc: Remove unnecessary barriers from spinlock.h
parisc: Remove ordered stores from syscall.S
PCI: Restore resized BAR state on resume
PCI / ACPI / PM: Resume all bridges on suspend-to-RAM
PCI: hotplug: Don't leak pci_slot on registration failure
PCI: aardvark: Size bridges before resources allocation
PCI: Skip MPS logic for Virtual Functions (VFs)
PCI: pciehp: Fix use-after-free on unplug
PCI: pciehp: Fix unprotected list iteration in IRQ handler
i2c: core: ACPI: Properly set status byte to 0 for multi-byte writes
i2c: imx: Fix race condition in dma read
reiserfs: fix broken xattr handling (heap corruption, bad retval)
