== SRU Justification ==
Upstream commit 5b5971df3bc2 introduced a regression in v4.15-rc2.  This
regression causes a hang on network interface removal in Xen virtual machine.

This regression is fixed by commit c2d2e6738a209 in v4.16-rc4. 

== Fix ==
c2d2e6738a20 ("xen-netfront: Fix hang on device removal")

== Regression Potential ==
Low.  Fixes a current regression and specific to Xen.

== 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.
