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 2.6.32.11 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 2.6.32.11 port and picked from 2.6.33.2 instead.

TEST CASE: TBD

The following patches (which we carried) were replaced by the versions from upstream stable:
* Bluetooth: Fix sleeping function in RFCOMM within invalid context
* USB: fix usbfs regression
* softlockup: Stop spurious softlockup messages due to overflow
* drm/nouveau: report unknown connector state if lid closed

This patch has not been replaced as there already have been modifications on top of it (patch in Ubuntu and upstream are identical):
* Input: wacom - ensure the device is initialized properly upon resume

Not replaced as those were part of a security update:
* x86: set_personality_ia32() misses force_personality32
