IMPORTANT NOTE: a security fix has been backported from mainline
4.4 stable updates to Xenial kernel 4.4.0-143.169 which changed an

the build of some dkms packages that we support (see  and ),
so in order to give people time to fix these issues, we are
postponing the release of all 4.4 kernels. The current tentative
release date is next Monday, Mar-11.
