Bug Description

== Precise SRU Justification ==
We provide updated compat-wireless stack packages for Precise via LBM in order to allow users access to updated or newer wireless drivers while remaining under the umbrella of the LTS release. A v3.10, v3.11, and v3.12 compat wireless stack is now available via upstream backports. We should provide them in LBM for Precise.

==Fix ==
The following branch contains a patch to add the compat-wireless v3.10, v3.11, and v3.12 stack:

  git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ogasawara/ubuntu-precise-lbm.git lp1246465

This is based on the following:

https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/stable/v3.10.17/

I've also provided a branch to update the meta package:

  git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ogasawara/ubuntu-precise-meta.git lp1246465

== Impact ==
LBM is an elective install so there shouldn't be any potential for regression. For those who do choose to install, this will provide an updated compat wireless stack.
