  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - debian/sysctl.d (Ubuntu-specific):
      + 10-console-messages.conf: stop low-level kernel messages on console.
      + 10-kernel-hardening.conf: add the kptr_restrict setting
      + 10-ipv6-privacy.conf: add a file to sysctl.d to apply the defaults
        for IPv6 privacy extensions for interfaces. (LP: #176125, #841353)
      + 10-magic-sysrq.conf: Disable most magic sysrq by default, allowing
        critical sync, remount, reboot functions. (LP: #194676, LP: #1025467)
      + 10-network-security.conf: enable rp_filter.

    - debian/rules: Fix cross build
    - ignore_eaccess.patch: If we get eaccess when opening a sysctl file for
      writing, don't error out.  Otherwise package upgrades can fail,
      especially in containers.
    - ignore_erofs.patch: Same as ignore_eaccess but for the case where
      part of /proc is read/only.
    - debian/procps.maintscript: handle migration of link-protect.conf from
      /etc to /usr.
