Bug Description

LXCFS upstream released LXCFS 3.0.2 as a bugfix release with following changelog:

    - travis: add coverity support
    - travis: fix .travis.yml
    - meminfo: read shmem from cgroup parameter memory.stat
    - meminfo: set ShmemHugePages and ShmemPmdMapped to zero
    - bindings: better logging for write_string()

Just like Ubuntu itself, upstream releases long term support releases, as is 3.0 and then periodic point releases including all the accumulated bugfixes.

Only the latest upstream release gets full support from the upstream developers, everyone else is expected to first update to it before receiving any kind of support.

This should qualify under the minor upstream bugfix release allowance of the SRU policy, letting us SRU this without paperwork for every single change included in this upstream release.

Once the SRU hits -updates, we will be backporting this to xenial-backports as well, making sure we have the same version everywhere.

Tested on bionic, upgrading reloaded lxcfs without impacting running containers and everything still works after a reboot too.
