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 4.4.145 upstream 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 4.4.145 stable release shall be applied:
* MIPS: ath79: fix register address in ath79_ddr_wb_flush()
* ip: hash fragments consistently
* net/mlx4_core: Save the qpn from the input modifier in RST2INIT wrapper
* rtnetlink: add rtnl_link_state check in rtnl_configure_link
* tcp: fix dctcp delayed ACK schedule
* tcp: helpers to send special DCTCP ack
* tcp: do not cancel delay-AcK on DCTCP special ACK
* tcp: do not delay ACK in DCTCP upon CE status change
* ip: in cmsg IP(V6)_ORIGDSTADDR call pskb_may_pull
* usb: cdc_acm: Add quirk for Castles VEGA3000
* usb: core: handle hub C_PORT_OVER_CURRENT condition
* usb: gadget: f_fs: Only return delayed status when len is 0
* driver core: Partially revert "driver core: correct device's shutdown order"
* can: xilinx_can: fix RX loop if RXNEMP is asserted without RXOK
* can: xilinx_can: fix recovery from error states not being propagated
* can: xilinx_can: fix device dropping off bus on RX overrun
* can: xilinx_can: keep only 1-2 frames in TX FIFO to fix TX accounting
* can: xilinx_can: fix incorrect clear of non-processed interrupts
* can: xilinx_can: fix RX overflow interrupt not being enabled
* turn off -Wattribute-alias
* ARM: fix put_user() for gcc-8
* Linux 4.4.145
