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



The following patches from the 4.4.87 stable release shall be applied:
* irqchip: mips-gic: SYNC after enabling GIC region
* i2c: ismt: Don't duplicate the receive length for block reads
* i2c: ismt: Return EMSGSIZE for block reads with bogus length
* ceph: fix readpage from fscache
* cpumask: fix spurious cpumask_of_node() on non-NUMA multi-node configs
* cpuset: Fix incorrect memory_pressure control file mapping
* alpha: uapi: Add support for __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__
* CIFS: Fix maximum SMB2 header size
* CIFS: remove endian related sparse warning
* wl1251: add a missing spin_lock_init()
* xfrm: policy: check policy direction value
* drm/ttm: Fix accounting error when fail to get pages for pool
* kvm: arm/arm64: Fix race in resetting stage2 PGD
* kvm: arm/arm64: Force reading uncached stage2 PGD
* epoll: fix race between ep_poll_callback(POLLFREE) and
* crypto: algif_skcipher - only call put_page on referenced and used pages
* Linux 4.4.87
