Bug Description

SRU Justification

  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.


  The following 35 patches are in the 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

The following upstream stable patches were skipped due to non trivial revert issues:

  * drm/i915: parse child device from VBT
  * drm/i915: Fix LVDS presence check
