[ACT][PATCH] UBUNTU: SAUCE: ubuntu_ltp_syscalls: skip inotify08 for kernels older than 4.13

The issue tested by LTP testcase inotify08 has been fixed by commit:
764baba80168 ("ovl: hash non-dir by lower inode for fsnotify")
>From this upstream commit:
"The issue dates back to initial version of overlayfs, but this
patch depends on ovl_inode code that was introduced in kernel v4.13."
Our Xenial 4.4 kernel doesn't have the ovl_inode code, so blacklist this
testcase for kernels older than 4.13.
