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 v3.5.6 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 v3.5.6 stable release:

vfs: dcache: fix deadlock in tree traversal
dm mpath: only retry ioctl when no paths if queue_if_no_path set
dm: handle requests beyond end of device instead of using BUG_ON
