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:

This re-committed an upstream stable fix f5a26acf0162 ("pinctrl: intel: Initialize GPIO properly when used through irqchip") that was later reverted in, also a stable fix, f840d7f6870d6 due to side effects on backlight device on some platforms. f840d7f6870d6 actually causes bug 1857874, and is planned to be reverted yet again in at least oem kernels. Since the original pinctrl fix has been re-committed to both generic and oem kernels, I marked bug 1857874 a duplicate of this bug.
