linux-4.4.160 is released with 2 security fixes. One concerning ext4.
commit cd3d6463759d21f4093d3434effacc358dd0caf8
Author: Theodore Ts'o <>

ext4: never move the xattr out of the inode body

commit 8cdb5240ec5928b20490a2bb34cb87e9a5f40226 upstream.

When expanding the extra isize space, we must never move the xattr out of the inode body. For performance reasons, it
doesn't make any sense, and the inline data implementation assumes
that xattr is never in the external xattr block.

This addresses CVE-2018-10880
