Debian LTS work, October 2019

I was assigned 22.75 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative. I worked almost all those hours this month, but will carry over 0.5 hours to November.

I prepared and, after review, released Linux 3.16.75, including various important fixes. I then rebased the Debian package onto that, and sent out a request for testing. I prepared and sent out Linux 3.16.76-rc1 for review.

I handled a misdirected request to update the tzdata package, adding that and the related Perl library to the dla-needed.txt file. I responded to a support request regarding Intel microcode updates for security issues. I also spent some time working on security issues that are still under embargo.
