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 Linus' tree or in a minimally
  backported form of that patch. The upstream stable
  patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
  kernel as well.


  The following 115 patches are in the stable release:

  * x86: don't send SIGBUS for kernel page faults
  * mm: fix missing page table unmap for stack guard page failure case
