Debian LTS work, May 2022

In May I was assigned 11 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 13 hours from April. I worked 8 hours, and will carry over the remaining time to June.

I spent some time triaging security issues for Linux, working out which of them were fixed upstream and which actually applied to the versions provided in Debian 9 "stretch". I rebased the Linux 4.9 (linux) package on the latest stable update, but did not make an upload this month. I started backporting several security fixes to 4.9, but those still have to be tested and reviewed.
