It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the Broadcom
FullMAC WLAN driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code.

Fix is pending in Xenial (4.4.0-93.116) but also required in Zesty
and Trusty. For Trusty the change has to be applied to a different
path but otherwise is unchanged.
