Since I was in the mindset of auditing and adding appropriate patches, I
continued to work through some more of the 4.13.x content.  So now we
have a 4.12.16, which is based on the appropriate content from the audit
of what was added into 4.13.6 to 4.13.9 inclusive, which also gives us
about 185 more stable commits for our 4.12.x baseline.

Everything below (testing, locations, signed tag) remains true for .16
just as it did for the earlier .15 release.  Feel free to merge both at
once if you have not merged .15 yet.
