== SRU Justification ==
Commit 52df157f17e5 introduced a regression in v4.13-rc1.  This regression
causes a stack trace to occur when tearing down an LXD container.  The process
hangs with the following message:

"unregister_netdevice: waiting for eth0 to become free. Usage count = 5"

This regression is fixed by commit 510c321b5571, which is in mainline as of
v4.16-rc7.  The fix is needed in Artful and Bionic.  However, Artful needs
commit 9620fef27ed2 as a prereq commit, so it's SRU request es beinsss sent separately.


== Fixes ==
9620fef27ed2 ("ipv4: convert dst_metrics.refcnt from atomic_t to refcount_t")
510c321b5571 ("xfrm: reuse uncached_list to track xdsts")

== Regression Potential ==
Low.  This commit is to fix a current regression.

== 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.
