Debian LTS work, July 2019

I was assigned 18.5 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and worked all those hours this month.

I prepared and released Linux 3.16.70 with various fixes from upstream. I then rebased jessie's linux package on this. Later in the month, I picked the fix for CVE-2019-13272, uploaded the package, and issued DLA-1862-1. I also released Linux 3.16.71 with just that fix.

I backported the latest security update for Linux 4.9 from stretch to jessie and issued DLA-1863-1.
