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 following upstream
       stable patches should be included in the Ubuntu kernel:

* scsi: ufs: skip shutdown if hba is not powered
* scsi: megaraid: disable device when probe failed after enabled device
* scsi: qla2xxx: Fix unbound sleep in fcport delete path.
* ARM: OMAP2+: Fix missing reset done flag for am3 and am43
* ARM: dts: am4372: Set memory bandwidth limit for DISPC
* nl80211: fix null pointer dereference

* sctp: change sctp_prot .no_autobind with true
* net: avoid potential infinite loop in tc_ctl_action()
