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 3.0.39 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.

       git://git.kernel.org/

    TEST CASE: TBD

       The following patches are in the 3.0.39 stable release:

cifs: always update the inode cache with the results from a FIND_*
ntp: Fix STA_INS/DEL clearing bug
mm: fix lost kswapd wakeup in kswapd_stop()
MIPS: Properly align the .data..init_task section.
UBIFS: fix a bug in empty space fix-up
dm raid1: fix crash with mirror recovery and discard
mm/vmstat.c: cache align vm_stat
mm: memory hotplug: Check if pages are correctly reserved on a per-section basis
mm: reduce the amount of work done when updating min_free_kbytes
mm: vmscan: fix force-scanning small targets without swap
vmscan: clear ZONE_CONGESTED for zone with good watermark
vmscan: add shrink_slab tracepoints
vmscan: shrinker->nr updates race and go wrong
vmscan: reduce wind up shrinker->nr when shrinker can't do work
vmscan: limit direct reclaim for higher order allocations
vmscan: abort reclaim/compaction if compaction can proceed
mm: compaction: trivial clean up in acct_isolated()
mm: change isolate mode from #define to bitwise type
mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware
mm: zone_reclaim: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware
mm: migration: clean up unmap_and_move()
mm: compaction: allow compaction to isolate dirty pages
mm: compaction: determine if dirty pages can be migrated without blocking within ->migratepage
mm: page allocator: do not call direct reclaim for THP allocations while compaction is deferred
mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware again
kswapd: avoid unnecessary rebalance after an unsuccessful balancing
kswapd: assign new_order and new_classzone_idx after wakeup in sleeping
mm: compaction: introduce sync-light migration for use by compaction
mm: vmscan: when reclaiming for compaction, ensure there are sufficient free pages available
mm: vmscan: do not OOM if aborting reclaim to start compaction
mm: vmscan: check if reclaim should really abort even if compaction_ready() is true for one zone
vmscan: promote shared file mapped pages
vmscan: activate executable pages after first usage
mm/vmscan.c: consider swap space when deciding whether to continue reclaim
mm: test PageSwapBacked in lumpy reclaim
mm: vmscan: convert global reclaim to per-memcg LRU lists
cpusets: avoid looping when storing to mems_allowed if one node remains set
cpusets: stall when updating mems_allowed for mempolicy or disjoint nodemask
cpuset: mm: reduce large amounts of memory barrier related damage v3
mm/hugetlb: fix warning in alloc_huge_page/dequeue_huge_page_vma
vmscan: fix initial shrinker size handling
Linux 3.0.39
