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 4.4.93 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 4.4.93 stable release shall be applied:
* brcmfmac: add length check in brcmf_cfg80211_escan_handler()
* ext4: in ext4_seek_{hole,data}, return -ENXIO for negative offsets
* CIFS: Reconnect expired SMB sessions
* nl80211: Define policy for packet pattern attributes
* iwlwifi: mvm: use IWL_HCMD_NOCOPY for MCAST_FILTER_CMD
* rcu: Allow for page faults in NMI handlers
* USB: dummy-hcd: Fix deadlock caused by disconnect detection
* MIPS: math-emu: Remove pr_err() calls from fpu_emu()

* KVM: nVMX: fix guest CR4 loading when emulating L2 to L1 exit
* usb: renesas_usbhs: Fix DMAC sequence for receiving zero-length packet
* iommu/amd: Finish TLB flush in amd_iommu_unmap()
* ALSA: usb-audio: Kill stray URB at exiting
* ALSA: seq: Fix use-after-free at creating a port
* ALSA: seq: Fix copy_from_user() call inside lock
* ALSA: caiaq: Fix stray URB at probe error path

* usb: gadget: composite: Fix use-after-free in
  usb_composite_overwrite_options

* USB: serial: option: add support for TP-Link LTE module
* Revert "UBUNTU: SAUCE: USB: serial: qcserial: add Dell DW5818, DW5819"
* USB: serial: qcserial: add Dell DW5818, DW5819
* USB: serial: console: fix use-after-free after failed setup

Manually applied "CIFS: Reconnect expired SMB sessions" ignoring some fuzz and reverting the implementation of smb2_is_session_expired() to its original 4.13 form as we carry related backports for bug #1670508 "CIFS: Enable encryption for SMB3".

Replace "UBUNTU: SAUCE: USB: serial: qcserial: add Dell DW5818, DW5819" with the upstream stable version.
