Commit c1fa0768a8713b135848f78fd43ffc208d8ded70 is already in Artful as of version: Ubuntu-4.13.0-17.20. It came in with the 4.13.5 upstream stable updates.
Commit c1fa0768a8713b135848f78fd43ffc208d8ded70 is not in upstream stable v4.4.y. This is probably because the commit needs a back port for v4.4. I performed a back port to the Xenial 4.4 kernel and built a test kernel with it. The test kernel can be downloaded from: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~jsalisbury/lp1763685 Can you test this kernel and see if it resolves this bug? Note, to test this kernel, you need to install both the linux-image and linux-image-extra .deb packages.

Since POWER9 can run VM on P8 compatibility mode, it's necessary to patch all kernels that run on compat mode as well.
