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 2.6.31.10 and 2.6.31.11 upstream stable patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu kernel as well. We do these updates together since 2.6.31.11 has only a single patch which reverts a patch from 2.6.31.10. We do the updates together so as to be in sync with upstream stable updates and not break any builds.

TEST CASE: TBD
