Debian LTS work, June 2019

I was assigned 17 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and worked all those hours this month.

I applied a number of security fixes to Linux 3.16, including those for the TCP denial-of-service vulnerabilities. I uploaded the updated package to jessie and issued DLA-1823.

I backported the corresponding security update for Linux 4.9 from stretch to jessie and issued DLA-1824.

I also prepared and released Linux 3.16.69 with most of the same security fixes, excluding those that weren't yet applied upstream.
