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 following upstream
       stable patches should be included in the Ubuntu kernel:

* Input: elantech - enable middle button support on 2 ThinkPads
* samples, bpf: fix to change the buffer size for read()
* mac80211: mesh: fix RCU warning
* dt-bindings: can: mcp251x: add mcp25625 support
* can: mcp251x: add support for mcp25625
* Input: imx_keypad - make sure keyboard can always wake up system
* ARM: davinci: da850-evm: call regulator_has_full_constraints()
* ARM: davinci: da8xx: specify dma_coherent_mask for lcdc
* md: fix for divide error in status_resync
* bnx2x: Check if transceiver implements DDM before access
* udf: Fix incorrect final NOT_ALLOCATED (hole) extent length
* x86/ptrace: Fix possible spectre-v1 in ptrace_get_debugreg()
* x86/tls: Fix possible spectre-v1 in do_get_thread_area()
* mwifiex: Abort at too short BSS descriptor element
* fscrypt: don't set policy for a dead directory
* mwifiex: Don't abort on small, spec-compliant vendor IEs
* USB: serial: ftdi_sio: add ID for isodebug v1
* USB: serial: option: add support for GosunCn ME3630 RNDIS mode
* usb: gadget: ether: Fix race between gether_disconnect and rx_submit
* usb: renesas_usbhs: add a workaround for a race condition of workqueue
* staging: comedi: dt282x: fix a null pointer deref on interrupt
* staging: comedi: amplc_pci230: fix null pointer deref on interrupt
* carl9170: fix misuse of device driver API
* VMCI: Fix integer overflow in VMCI handle arrays
* MIPS: Remove superfluous check for __linux__
* e1000e: start network tx queue only when link is up
* perf/core: Fix perf_sample_regs_user() mm check
* ARM: omap2: remove incorrect __init annotation

* s390: fix stfle zero padding
* s390/qdio: (re-)initialize tiqdio list entries
* s390/qdio: don't touch the dsci in tiqdio_add_input_queues()
