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:

* kvm: mmu: Don't read PDPTEs when paging is not enabled
* MIPS: BCM63XX: fix switch core reset on BCM6368
* powerpc/Makefile: Use cflags-y/aflags-y for setting endian options
* powerpc: Fix compiling a BE kernel with a powerpc64le toolchain
* powerpc/boot: Request no dynamic linker for boot wrapper
* x86/speculation/taa: Fix printing of TAA_MSG_SMT on IBRS_ALL CPUs
* Linux 4.4.202
* UBUNTU: upstream stable to v4.4.202

       4.4.202 upstream stable release
       from git://git.kernel.org/
