So I patched the 4.15.0-15-generic kernel from with
the supplied patch and then intstalled the kernel on my 16.04 xenail
laptop and everything works as it should. The display came up, the touch
pad is responsive and working normally. I have enclosed my dumps of
lswh, lspci, lsmod and my cmdline output.

How I installed this:
I build a bionic container on my laptop:
lxc launch ubuntu-daily:bionic kernel
lxc file push spth-pinctrl-fix.diff kernel/root/
lxc exec kernel bash
apt update && apt upgrade -y
apt build-dep linux-image-`uname -r`
apt install fakeroot
git clone git://
cd ubuntu-bionic
cp ../spth-pinctrl-fix.diff .
patch -p1 < spth-pintctrl-fix.diff
fakeroot debian/rules clean
fakeroot debian/rules binary-headers binary-generic binary-perarch

After the build and the output of the deb files:
mkdir ~/kernel-test
cd ~/kernel-test
lxc file pull kernel/root/linux-image-4.15.0-15-generic_4.15.0-15.16_amd64.deb .
lxc file pull 
kernel/root/linux-image-extra-4.15.0-15-generic_4.15.0-15.16_amd64.deb .
lxc file pull kernel/root/linux-headers-4.15.0-15_4.15.0-15.16_all.deb . 
lxc file pull 
kernel/root/linux-headers-4.15.0-15-generic_4.15.0-15.16_amd64.deb .

Also, the linux-headers-4.15.0-15 deb depends on libssl1.1, which is
default in Bionic, but not in Xenial, so I had to download that deb file
from here:

And then I just used dpkg -i to install the files and reboot the laptop
and it started up properly.

While the laptop display works and the touchpad is responsive and works
properly. there are still issues with the FN+F7/F8 brightness controls,
and the other FN options that should work out of the box, but at least
the display works with the 4.15.0-15 kernel
