Bug description:
  *** Temporary workaround ***
  Install Kernel from the following location:
  - http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.6-yakkety/

  Perform the following:
  - $ apt-add-repository "deb 
http://ppa.launchpad.net/canonical-kernel-team/ppa/ubuntu yakkety main"
  - $ echo -en "Package: *\nPin: release 
o=LP-PPA-canonical-kernel-team-ppa\nPin-Priority: -1\n" >> 
  - $ apt update
  - $ apt install linux-image-extra-4.6.0-6-generic 
linux-headers-4.6.0-6-generic linux-tools-4.6.0-6-generic
  There was a typo in instructions (/etc/preferences.d should have been 
  As result you might have upgraded Linux META packages and therefor you won't 
receive proper upgrades of Xenial native Linux packages (hoping they will ever 
contain the fix).
  I suggest you move 
/etc/preferences.d/canonical-kernel-team-ubuntu-ppa-yakkety to 
/etc/apt/preferences.d/ and downgrade related packages:
  $ apt update
  $ apt install linux-headers-generic/xenial-updates 
linux-tools-generic/xenial-updates linux-image-generic/xenial-updates
