SRU justification:

Impact: Several bug fixes and updates to get in sync with upstream stable. This update features one vmware fix that we were asked to pick up on the kerne-team mailing list, replaces one patch that was carried as SAUCE patch, as well as a few fixes to previous stable releases.

Fix:

 * iwlwifi: scan correct setting of valid rx_chains
 * kernel-doc: fix syscall wrapper processing
 * lockd: fix regression in lockd's handling of blocked locks
 * nbd: fix I/O hang on disconnected nbds
 * parport: parport_serial, don't bind netmos ibm 0299
 * powerpc: Fix swapcontext system for VSX + old ucontext size
 * powerpc/fsl-booke: Fix mapping functions to use phys_addr_t(1)
 * syscall define: fix uml compile bug
 * w1: w1 temp calculation overflow fix
 * write-back: fix nr_to_write counter
 * writeback: fix break condition
 * x86, vmi: put a missing paravirt_release_pmd in pgd_dtor(2)
 * zd1211rw: adding 0ace:0xa211 as a ZD1211 device
 * zd1211rw: treat MAXIM_NEW_RF(0x08) as UW2453_RF(0x09) for TP-Link WN322/422G
 * sctp: Fix crc32c calculations on big-endian arhes.
 * sctp: Correctly start rtx timer on new packet transmissions.
 * sctp: Properly timestamp outgoing data chunks for rtx purposes
 * drivers/net/skfp: if !capable(CAP_NET_ADMIN): inverted logic
 * ipv4: fix infinite retry loop in IP-Config
 * ipv6: Disallow rediculious flowlabel option sizes.
 * ipv6: Copy cork options in ip6_append_data
 * net: 4 bytes kernel memory disclosure in SO_BSDCOMPAT gsopt try #2
 * net: packet socket packet_lookup_frame fix
 * sky2: fix hard hang with netconsoling and iface going up
 * sungem: Soft lockup in sungem on Netra AC200 when switching interface up
 * tun: Add some missing TUN compat ioctl translations.
 * tun: Fix unicast filter overflow
 * udp: Fix UDP short packet false positive
 * udp: increments sk_drops in __udp_queue_rcv_skb()
 * virtio_net: Fix MAX_PACKET_LEN to support 802.1Q VLANs
 * net: Fix frag_list handling in skb_seq_read
 * net: Fix OOPS in skb_seq_read().
 * packet: Avoid lock_sock in mmap handler
 * tcp: splice as many packets as possible at once
 * tcp: Fix length tcp_splice_data_recv passes to skb_splice_bits.
 * sparc: Enable syscall wrappers for 64-bit (CVE-2009-0029)
 * sparc64: Annotate sparc64 specific syscalls with SYSCALL_DEFINEx()
 * netfilter: fix tuple inversion for Node information request
 * netfilter: xt_sctp: sctp chunk mapping doesn't work
 * bluetooth hid: enable quirk handling for Apple Wireless Keyboards in 2.6.27
    * Revert "UBUNTU: SAUCE: Add back in lost commit for Apple BT Wireless Keyboard"
 * HID: adjust report descriptor fixup for MS 1028 receiver
 * libata: fix EH device failure handling
 * ide/libata: fix ata_id_is_cfa() (take 4)
 * x86: fixup config space size of CPU functions for AMD family 11h
 * mac80211: fix a buffer overrun in station debug code
 * ALSA: mtpav - Fix initial value for input hwport

 * Linux 2.6.27.18

(1) Would bump the ABI for ports(powerpc)
(2) This patch was requested on the kernel-team mailing list

This will likely bump the ABI for sparc64 ports.

I'm setting the actively developed linux task to Fix Released as these are already included in the latest 2.6.28-11.42 Jaunty kernel.
