Debian LTS work, November 2020

I was assigned 16 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 4.5 hours from earlier months. I worked 11.5 hours this month, so I will carry over 9 hours to December.

I continued working on backporting fixes for some less urgent security issues in Linux 4.9. I had to give up on some filesystem fixes as they caused regressions. The others have now been applied to the 4.9 stable branch at

I updated the linux packaging branch for stretch to Linux 4.9.246, but haven't made a new package upload yet.
