Title:
  Xenial update to 4.4.99 stable release

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid
Status in linux source package in Xenial:
  New

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 4.4.99 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 4.4.99 stable release shall be applied:
  * mac80211: accept key reinstall without changing anything
  * mac80211: use constant time comparison with keys
  * mac80211: don't compare TKIP TX MIC key in reinstall prevention
  * usb: usbtest: fix NULL pointer dereference
  * Input: ims-psu - check if CDC union descriptor is sane
  * ALSA: seq: Cancel pending autoload work at unbinding device
  * tun/tap: sanitize TUNSETSNDBUF input
  * tcp: fix tcp_mtu_probe() vs highest_sack
  * l2tp: check ps->sock before running pppol2tp_session_ioctl()
  * tun: call dev_get_valid_name() before register_netdevice()
  * sctp: add the missing sock_owned_by_user check in sctp_icmp_redirect
  * packet: avoid panic in packet_getsockopt()
  * ipv6: flowlabel: do not leave opt->tot_len with garbage
  * net/unix: don't show information about sockets from other namespaces
  * ip6_gre: only increase err_count for some certain type icmpv6 in ip6gre_err
  * tun: allow positive return values on dev_get_valid_name() call
  * sctp: reset owner sk for data chunks on out queues when migrating a sock
  * ppp: fix race in ppp device destruction
  * ipip: only increase err_count for some certain type icmp in ipip_err
  * tcp/dccp: fix ireq->opt races
  * tcp/dccp: fix lockdep splat in inet_csk_route_req()
  * tcp/dccp: fix other lockdep splats accessing ireq_opt
  * security/keys: add CONFIG_KEYS_COMPAT to Kconfig
  * tipc: fix link attribute propagation bug
  * brcmfmac: remove setting IBSS mode when stopping AP
  * target/iscsi: Fix iSCSI task reassignment handling
  * target: Fix node_acl demo-mode + uncached dynamic shutdown regression
  * misc: panel: properly restore atomic counter on error path
  * Linux 4.4.99
