I'm glad you asked the question, my initial run through was more from
the perspective of "what is required to compile against 4.4" rather
than "what are all the commits upstream that aren't backported".

I took a look through, and in addition to the above I found:
a31f1adc0948 ("netfilter: nf_conntrack: Add a struct net parameter to
19bcf9f203c8 ("ipv4: Pass struct net into ip_defrag and ip_check_defrag")

I'll respin the series to include these and address feedback.
