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:

* ARM: riscpc: fix DMA
* ARM: dts: rockchip: Mark that the rk3288 timer might stop in suspend
* kernel/module.c: Only return -EEXIST for modules that have finished loading
* MIPS: lantiq: Fix bitfield masking
* dmaengine: rcar-dmac: Reject zero-length slave DMA requests
* fs/adfs: super: fix use-after-free bug
* btrfs: fix minimum number of chunk errors for DUP
* ceph: fix improper use of smp_mb__before_atomic()
* scsi: zfcp: fix GCC compiler warning emitted with -Wmaybe-uninitialized
* ACPI: fix false-positive -Wuninitialized warning
* be2net: Signal that the device cannot transmit during reconfiguration
* x86/apic: Silence -Wtype-limits compiler warnings
* x86: math-emu: Hide clang warnings for 16-bit overflow
* mm/cma.c: fail if fixed declaration can't be honored
* coda: add error handling for fget
* coda: fix build using bare-metal toolchain
* uapi linux/coda_psdev.h: move upc_req definition from uapi to kernel side headers
* ipc/mqueue.c: only perform resource calculation if user valid
* x86/kvm: Don't call kvm_spurious_fault() from .fixup
* selinux: fix memory leak in policydb_init()
* s390/dasd: fix endless loop after read unit address configuration
* xen/swiotlb: fix condition for calling xen_destroy_contiguous_region()
* Linux 4.4.188
