Bug Description

SRU Justification

Impact: The upstream process for stable tree updates is quite similar in scope to the Ubuntu SRU process, e.g., each patch has to demonstrably fix a bug, and each patch is vetted by upstream by originating either directly from Linus' tree or in a minimally backported form of that patch. The upstream stable patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu kernel as well.



Due to the fact that we are carrying the DRM backport from 2.6.33, all patches affecting DRM have been dropped from the port and picked from instead.



The following 36 patches have been in
* Revert "module: fix __module_ref_addr()"
* ipv4: udp: fix short packet and bad checksum logging
* hp_accel: fix race in device removal
* fbdev: bfin-t350mcqb-fb: fix fbmem allocation with blanking lines
* hugetlbfs: kill applications that use MAP_NORESERVE with SIGBUS instead of OOM-killer
* dma-mapping: fix dma_sync_single_range_*
* ACPI: sleep: eliminate duplicate entries in acpisleep_dmi_table[]
* mmc: atmel-mci: fix two parameters swapped
* mmc: atmel-mci: prevent kernel oops while removing card
* mmc: atmel-mci: remove data error interrupt after xfer
* ptrace: fix return value of do_syscall_trace_enter()
* powerpc/perf_event: Fix oops due to perf_event_do_pending call
* cifs: guard against hardlinking directories
* serial: imx.c: fix CTS trigger level lower to avoid lost chars
* ALSA: ice1724 - Fix ESI Maya44 capture source control
* ALSA: hda: Fix 0 dB for Lenovo models using Conexant CX20549 (Venice)
* inotify: race use after free/double free in inotify inode marks
* inotify: don't leak user struct on inotify release
* profile: fix stats and data leakage
* x86, k8: Fix build error when K8_NB is disabled
* x86, cacheinfo: Turn off L3 cache index disable feature in virtualized environments
* x86, amd: Check X86_FEATURE_OSVW bit before accessing OSVW MSRs

* nilfs2: fix sync silent failure
* Revert "ath9k: fix lockdep warning when unloading module" on stable kernels
* crypto: authenc - Add EINPROGRESS check
* Revert "parisc: Set PCI CLS early in boot."
* Linux

The following 4 patches have been in
