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 upstream stable patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu kernel as well.

Due to the fact that we are carrying the DRM backport from 2.6.33, all patches affecting DRM have been dropped from the port and picked from instead.

Good catch. The kernel was up, but to offer the upgrade the linux-meta package
needs to be updated. Will get that done. Thanks.
