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 v4.14.2 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.

       git://git.kernel.org/

    TEST CASE: TBD

       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
