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 a mainline/stable Linux tree or
       a minimally backported form of that patch. The v4.14.2 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.



       The following patches from the v4.14.2 stable release shall be applied:

bio: ensure __bio_clone_fast copies bi_partno
af_netlink: ensure that NLMSG_DONE never fails in dumps
vxlan: fix the issue that neigh proxy blocks all icmpv6 packets
net: cdc_ncm: GetNtbFormat endian fix
fealnx: Fix building error on MIPS
net/sctp: Always set scope_id in sctp_inet6_skb_msgname
ima: do not update security.ima if appraisal status is not INTEGRITY_PASS
serial: omap: Fix EFR write on RTS deassertion
serial: 8250_fintek: Fix finding base_port with activated SuperIO
tpm-dev-common: Reject too short writes
rcu: Fix up pending cbs check in rcu_prepare_for_idle
mm/pagewalk.c: report holes in hugetlb ranges
ocfs2: fix cluster hang after a node dies
ocfs2: should wait dio before inode lock in ocfs2_setattr()
ipmi: fix unsigned long underflow
mm/page_alloc.c: broken deferred calculation
mm/page_ext.c: check if page_ext is not prepared
coda: fix 'kernel memory exposure attempt' in fsync
ipmi: Prefer ACPI system interfaces over SMBIOS ones
Linux 4.14.2
