This patch should really be viewed as a correction to an earlier commit:
84cb3df02aea ("Bluetooth: hci_ldisc: Fix null pointer derefence in case
of early data"). This was merged 2016-Apr-08 into v4.7, and therefore is
included in 4.9 and higher.

Only very recently, on 2019-Sep-23, this was backported to 3.16, along
with the correction. Both appeared in v3.16.74.

The patch does not apply, but this is mainly due to the earlier commit
missing. It seems to me like that earlier fix is desirable (and it was
put into 3.16), along with the followup. So I would think we want it in
4.4 as well.

[Aside: I'm really only interested in 4.9 and 4.19, so the 4.4 stuff is
just a diversion. But figured I might as well mention what I found...]
