Guys, it should be there for both the Yakkety kernel and linux-generic-hwe-16.04:

There are no HWE packages for non-LTS releases so the fix-commited for Yakkety belongs to both linux-generic in yakkety and linux-generic-hwe-16.04 in xenial as I understand it.

$ lsb_release -r

Or are you saying that this issue is present in 4.4 as well?
