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

  http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/patch-2.6.32.18.bz2

TEST CASE: TBD

  The following 35 patches are in the 2.6.32.18 stable release:

  * ssb: Handle alternate SSPROM location
  * ssb: fix NULL ptr deref when pcihost_wrapper is used
  * ssb: Look for SPROM at different offset on higher rev CC
  * ssb: do not read SPROM if it does not exist
  * Revert "ssb: Handle Netbook devices where the SPROM address is changed"
  * drm/i915: parse child device from VBT
  * drm/i915: Fix LVDS presence check
  * xen: drop xen_sched_clock in favour of using plain wallclock time
  * CIFS: Fix compile error with __init in cifs_init_dns_resolver() definition
  * CIFS: Remove __exit mark from cifs_exit_dns_resolver()
  * slow-work: use get_ref wrapper instead of directly calling get_ref
  * GFS2: rename causes kernel Oops
  * SCSI: enclosure: fix error path - actually return ERR_PTR() on error
  * xfs: prevent swapext from operating on write-only files
  * cfg80211: don't get expired BSSes
  * cfg80211: ignore spurious deauth
  * iwlwifi: fix scan abort
  * ath9k: fix yet another buffer leak in the tx aggregation code
  * ath9k: fix TSF after reset on AR913x
  * ath9k_hw: fix an off-by-one error in the PDADC boundaries calculation
  * ath9k: enable serialize_regmode for non-PCIE AR9160
  * 9p: strlen() doesn't count the terminator
  * e1000e: 82577/82578 PHY register access issues
  * e1000e: don't inadvertently re-set INTX_DISABLE
  * amd64_edac: Correct scrub rate setting
  * amd64_edac: Fix DCT base address selector
  * parisc: pass through '\t' to early (iodc) console
  * arm/imx/gpio: add spinlock protection
  * PARISC: led.c - fix potential stack overflow in led_proc_write()
  * NFS: kswapd must not block in nfs_release_page
  * comedi: Uncripple 8255-based DIO subdevices
  * acl trouble after upgrading ubuntu
  * mm: fix ia64 crash when gcore reads gate area
  * sched: cgroup: Implement different treatment for idle shares
