This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed- xenial'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

We first experienced it on the snapdragon kernel snap in -beta (dragonboard 410c) but the bug is arm64 generic, and it affects all the arm64 hardware: a thunderx board shows the same exact symptoms. The regression came down as part of the 4.4.115 stable update ("79e83d1 bpf: introduce BPF_JIT_ALWAYS_ON config") and enabled this option that crashes the arm64 kernel on boot. [How to test] Apply the attached patch, recompile, install and boot. [Regression potential] None, since the kernel already fails to boot.
