Hi Cerri, thanks for the ack! It's on stable tree, v4.4.185 - it'll
arrive organically in Ubuntu
and since kernel 4.4 has no fortify panic and most cloud providers
users (if not all) are using
4.15, I don't see a need for SRU to Xenial now (specially given the
big size of this cycle).
If you or anybody else disagree with this, I'll be glad to provide SRU
for Xenial.
