Hi Cerri, thanks for the ack!

CIFS maintainers sent this patch to stable, it's on 4.9/4.14/4.19 LTS
stable kernels, as well
as 5.0.y and newer, but not in 4.4.y. I've checked and seems
"backportable" to 4.4, code is
quite similar.

But since CIFS maintainers and Greg/Sash didn't merged the commit in
version 4.4 and we
have no reports of this issue in 4.4, I vote for being conservative
and keep it on 4.15+, not
diverging from stable tree. If you or anybody here disagree with that,
I'd be glad to proceed
with the SRU to Xenial.
