Title:
  Oops on EEH hit during tg3 probe

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  In Progress
Status in linux source package in Yakkety:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  -- Problem Description --
  We observed that when EEH error is hit during tg3 driver probe, we might 
trigger a kernel oops due to a memory access to an uninitialized pointer.

  The following upstream patch addresses the issue: 1b0ff89852 ("tg3: Avoid 
NULL pointer dereference in tg3_io_error_detected()")
  
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=1b0ff89852d79354e8a091c81a88df21f5aa9f0a

  
  We want to request Canonical to add this patch to Ubuntu 16.04 kernel if 
possible.
  Thanks in advance,

  Guilherme
