== SRU Justification ==
The following commits needed to be added to the 4.10 and 4.4 kernels 
for stable operation of r8192e_pci driver. They are already in Xenial because 
they came in with upstream stable updates.  However, upstream v4.10 is EOL so 
these commits are being submitted via SRU request. 

All four commits are in mainline as of v4.12-rc2.

== Fixes ==
baabd567f87b ("staging: rtl8192e: rtl92e_fill_tx_desc fix write to mapped out memory.")
867510bde14e ("staging: rtl8192e: fix 2 byte alignment of register BSSIDR.")
90be652c9f15 ("staging: rtl8192e: rtl92e_get_eeprom_size Fix read size of EPROM_CMD.")
95d93e271d92 ("staging: rtl8192e: GetTs Fix invalid TID 7 warning.")

== Regression Potential ==
These commits were also cc'd to stable and accepted, so additional upstream review
was performed.

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