Debian LTS work, March 2018

I was assigned 15 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 2 hours from February. I worked 15 hours and will again carry over 2 hours to April.

I made another two releases on the Linux 3.2 longterm stable branch (3.2.100 and 3.2.101), the latter including mitigations for Spectre on x86. I rebased the Debian package onto 3.2.101 but didn't upload an update to Debian this month. We will need to add gcc-4.9 to wheezy before we can enable all the mitigations for Spectre variant 2.
