Bug Description

Incorporate stable kernel updates from 2.6.27.10 except for "iwlagn: fix RX skb alignment". Besides causing an ABI bump it only applies to machines using > 4K page size (such as PowerPC). iwl on PowerPC with non-standard page sizes is an extremely rare use case. Pick this one up on the next ABI bumping upload.

Is it normal i get a 'Distribution upgrade' window when installing this kernel version?

I'd like to point out bug 314119 from Steave Beattie about a regression he's noticed in the 2.6.27-11.22 kernel in -proposed - "2.6.27-11.22, causes the brightness settings on my lenovo t61 laptop to no longer work. Altering the LCD brightness settings while running the kernel in intrepid-updates, 2.6.27-10.20, does work."

I've asked Steve if he could help narrow down if it was the 2.6.27.8/2.6.27.9 stable updates, bug 308761, or the 2.6.27.10 stable updates which introduced this regression. I wanted to make a note here just in case. Thanks.

Bug 314119 has now been marked a dup of bug 311716. Steve has confirmed the fix for bug 311716 has resolved the issue he reported for bug 314119.
