Bug Description

== Quantal SRU Justification ==

The DVD drive attached to an HP Gen8+ platform can not be detected running Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10. The issue is also seen on the platform running SuSe. A patch has landed upstream and been CC'd to upstream stable. The fix landed in Raring when we pulled in the v3.8.7 upstream stable patch set.

Invalidating the Precise nomination since we really just need this included in the Quantal kernel which will also be made available within the Quantal HWE kernel in Precise.
