Description of the change

Backport of an upstream fix to a cpu hang when waiting on background tasks.

PPA available for testing is at

I was not able to reproduce the hang myself, but apparently it can take days or weeks to reproduce. However, the fix was taken upstream and looks clearly correct to me. I'm confident given enough run time it would reproduce. It may be difficult to positively test for the bug's absence however.

I'm assuming that the target branch for this should be ubuntu/cosmic-devel; I couldn't find documentation to this effect however it seems to be what others are targeting to. Let me know if it's wrong.

I'm unclear if any tags are needed for SRU bugs but am gathering that none are. Again, let me know if otherwise.
