== SRU Justification ==
A bug was found in Yakkety, which causes a kernel call trace when the
bug reporter connects a third USB HDD to a USB hub. 
After the trace, kswapd0 process uses 100% of CPU.  This is fixed by
mainline commit a810007afe239d59c1115fcaa06eb5b480f876e9.  This commit
was also cc'd to stable.  However, submitting a SRU request since
upstream 4.8.x is EOL.

Commit a810007afe239d59c1115fcaa06eb5b480f876e9 was added to mainline
in v4.10-rc8.

== Fix ==
commit a810007afe239d59c1115fcaa06eb5b480f876e9

    mm/slub.c: fix random_seq offset destruction

== Test Case ==
A test kernel was built with this patch and tested by the original bug reporter.
The bug reporter states the test kernel resolved the bug.
