Debian LTS work, April 2019

I was assigned 17.25 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 14 hours from March. I worked all 31.25 hours this month.

I uploaded firmware-nonfree with Emilio Pozuelo Monfort's changes, and issued DLA-1747-1.

I made a stable update to Linux 3.16 (3.16.65) and rebased the Debian package on top of this. I built and uploaded packages for testing, to reduce the risk of an uncaught regression in the next update to jessie. I prepared the next stable update (3.16.66), which is currently out for review.

I merged changes from stretch's linux package into linux-4.9, and from linux-latest into linux-latest-4.9. I built and uploaded these and prepared a DLA. However, linux-4.9 is currently waiting in the NEW queue because it includes an ABI bump.
