Bug Description

Impact
======
New bugfix release in the 3.26 stable series.

- Fix unredirecting full-screen windows and fix returning to
  full-screen after Alt-Tab (LP: #1725649)
- Allow HiDPI scaling even when non-HiDPI displays are connected (LP: #1724024)
- Fix Epiphany URL bar (LP: #1719043) (Closes: #875826)
* Drop cherry-picked patches

mutter is used by GNOME Shell and Budgie, so this update affects the Ubuntu and Ubuntu Budgie flavors.

https://git.gnome.org/browse/mutter/tree/NEWS?h=gnome-3-26
https://git.gnome.org/browse/mutter/log?h=gnome-3-26

Test Case
=========
Install the updates.
Restart your computer.

a. Log in to Ubuntu.
b. Also make sure that Ubuntu Budgie still works

Regression Potential
====================
Mutter is required for the login manager (gdm3) and default desktop so a severe enough regression could lead to some users being unable to use their computer except from a virtual terminal.

On the other hand, other GNOME 3.26 distros are shipping this update and it fixes several important issues.

There is a micro-release exception for GNOME:
