Really?  Commit f18fa5de5ba7 ("net: ieee802154: 6lowpan: fix frag
reassembly") says it fixes commit 648700f76b03 ("inet: frags: use
rhashtables for reassembly units") which did not show up until 4.17-rc1:
        $ git describe --contains 648700f76b03

Also, it did not get backported to 4.16.y, so I don't see how it is
needed in 4.16-stable.

To verify this, I tried applying the patch, and it totally fails to
apply to the 4.16.y tree.

So are you _sure_ you want/need this in 4.16?  If so, can you provide a
working backport that you have verified works?
