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 v4.8.3 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 v4.8.3 stable release shall be applied:

v4l: rcar-fcp: Don't force users to check for disabled FCP support
scsi: configure runtime pm before calling device_add in scsi_add_host_with_dma
Make __xfs_xattr_put_listen preperly report errors.
Linux 4.8.3
