Hi Greg,

While looking at the Ubuntu Xenial patches, I came across two patches from
Linus, written last year around 4.6 time frame, that are used as a fix for
CVE-2015-8944. The patches look stable-worthy to me, but were not backported
to 4.4, hence sending for your review.

Also, another patch for vlan that looks useful, if you could please review and
merge to your stable tree?

These have been build-tested with x86 and arm64 allmodconfig. They apply
cleanly on top of 4.4.79, and are present in 4.9.y+.

Best regards,
Sumit.

Linus Torvalds (2):
  Make file credentials available to the seqfile interfaces
  /proc/iomem: only expose physical resource addresses to privileged
    users

Mike Manning (1):
  vlan: Propagate MAC address to VLANs
