Debian LTS work, March 2019

I was assigned 20 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 16.5 hours from February. I worked 22.5 hours and so will carry over 14 hours.

I merged changes from stretch's linux package into the linux-4.9 package, uploaded that, and issued DLA-1715. I made another stable update to Linux 3.16 (3.16.64). I then rebased Debian's linux package on that version, uploaded it, and issued DLA-1731. This unfortunately introduced a regression, which I fixed in a second update.

I also reviewed and merged Emilio Pozuelo Monfort's changes to the firmware-nonfree package to address CVE-2018-5383.
