Bruce, Yocto kernel folks:

Continuing on the previously released v4.8.18 kernel, we now have
the appropriate content from 4.9.4 and 4.9.5 applied on top of that.
I've combined the two since 4.9.4 alone only contributed about 50
changesets; adding in the appropriate 4.9.5 content gets us to about
the same quantity as the v4.8.18 release was.

I've put this 4.8.x queue through the various testing that I figured
made sense, and after no obvious problems, I bumped the Makefile and
did the signed tag just as per the v4.8.18 from a week or so ago.

Testing: Booted v4.8.19 on a COTS x86_64 Core2 Duo machine.  I've also
built v4.8.19 for mips, ppc, arm, arm64 in allmodconfig and by using
yocto-4.9 builds and then hard reset standard/base to v4.8.19; followed
by a rebuild for the arch specific yocto .config file. 

Please find a signed v4.8.19 tag using this key:


in the repo in my kernel.org directory here:


for merge to standard/base in linux-yocto-4.8 and then out from there
into the other base and BSP branches.
