Debian LTS work, February 2020

I was assigned 20 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and worked 19.25 hours this month, so I will carry over 0.75 hours to March.

I prepared and, after review, released Linux 3.16.82. I then rebased the Debian package onto that, but haven't yet sent a request for testing. I have started preparing and testing the next update to Linux 3.16.

I backported the Linux 4.9 package that was included in the stretch point release (Debian 9.12) and uploaded it to jessie. I prepared DLA 2114-1 covering this update.

I also replied to questions from LTS contributors and users, sent to the lts-security alias or on the public mailing list.
