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 2.6.33.y upstream stable tree contains two commits which enable the megaraid_sas driver to recognise the new models of MegaRaid SAS controllers at issue in this bug report.

TEST CASE:
Two commits from the 2.6.33.y tree were applied to a Lucid test build and tested by at least one subscriber to this bug who verified it resolved the issue for them.
