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 4.4.86 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 4.4.86 stable release shall be applied:
* scsi: isci: avoid array subscript warning
* ALSA: au88x0: Fix zero clear of stream->resources
* btrfs: remove duplicate const specifier
* i2c: jz4780: drop superfluous init
* gcov: add support for gcc version >= 6
* gcov: support GCC 7.1
* lightnvm: initialize ppa_addr in dev_to_generic_addr()
* p54: memset(0) whole array
* lpfc: Fix Device discovery failures during switch reboot test.
* arm64: mm: abort uaccess retries upon fatal signal
* x86/io: Add "memory" clobber to insb/insw/insl/outsb/outsw/outsl
* arm64: fpsimd: Prevent registers leaking across exec
* scsi: sg: protect accesses to 'reserved' page array
* scsi: sg: reset 'res_in_use' after unlinking reserved array
* drm/i915: fix compiler warning in drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_uncore.c
* Linux 4.4.86
