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 3 patches are in the stable release:

  * Linux
  * x86, apic: ack all pending irqs when crashed/on kexec
  * USB: ftdi_sio: add product ID for Lenz LI-USB
  * USB: ftdi_sio: Add ID for Ionics PlugComputer
  * USB: xhci: Remove buggy assignment in next_trb()
  * USB: io_ti: check firmware version before updating
  * USB: ftdi_sio: fix endianess of max packet size
  * USB: CP210x Fix Break On/Off
  * USB: pl2303: New vendor and product id
  * USB: add device IDs for igotu to navman
  * USB: option: add Celot CT-650
  * powerpc: Fix typo in uImage target
  * drm: stop information leak of old kernel stack.
  * drm/radeon/kms: fix typo in radeon_compute_pll_gain
  * netlink: fix compat recvmsg
  * ALSA: intel8x0: Mute External Amplifier by default for ThinkPad X31
  * fixes for using make 3.82
  * oprofile: add support for Intel processor model 30
  * Oprofile: Change CPUIDS from decimal to hex, and add some comments
  * ext4: consolidate in_range() definitions
  * pcmcia: avoid buffer overflow in pcmcia_setup_isa_irq
  * vmscan: raise the bar to PAGEOUT_IO_SYNC stalls
  * act_nat: the checksum of ICMP doesn't have pseudo header
  * isdn: fix information leak
  * can: add limit for nframes and clean up signed/unsigned variables
  * net: Fix a memmove bug in dev_gro_receive()
  * sparc64: Fix atomic64_t routine return values.
  * sparc64: Fix rwsem constant bug leading to hangs.
  * sparc64: Add missing ID to parport probing code.
  * sunxvr500: Ignore secondary output PCI devices.
  * slab: fix object alignment
  * drm/i915: add 'reclaimable' to i915 self-reclaimable page allocations
  * drm/i915: fix hibernation since i915 self-reclaim fixes
  * mm: make stack guard page logic use vm_prev pointer
  * mm: make the mlock() stack guard page checks stricter
  * mm: make the vma list be doubly linked
  * dm ioctl: release _hash_lock between devices in remove_all
  * dm mpath: fix NULL pointer dereference when path parameters missing
  * drm/i915/edp: Flush the write before waiting for PLLs
  * pxa3xx: fix ns2cycle equation
  * ath5k: disable ASPM L0s for all cards
  * nfs: Add "lookupcache" to displayed mount options
  * ARM: Tighten check for allowable CPSR values
  * hwmon: (pc87360) Fix device resource declaration
  * Fix the nested PR lock calling issue in ACL
  * x86, apic: Fix apic=debug boot crash
  * x86, hotplug: Serialize CPU hotplug to avoid bringup concurrency issues
  * ocfs2/dlm: remove potential deadlock -V3
  * ocfs2/dlm: avoid incorrect bit set in refmap on recovery master
  * ocfs2: Count more refcount records in file system fragmentation.
  * ocfs2 fix o2dlm dlm run purgelist (rev 3)
  * ocfs2/dlm: fix a dead lock
  * ocfs2: do not overwrite error codes in ocfs2_init_acl
  * ALSA: hda - Fix missing stream for second ADC on Realtek ALC260 HDA codec
  * ALSA: emu10k1 - delay the PCM interrupts (add pcm_irq_delay parameter)
  * ALSA: riptide - Fix detection / load of firmware files

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

  * drm/i915: add 'reclaimable' to i915 self-reclaimable page allocations
  * drm/i915: fix hibernation since i915 self-reclaim fixes
  * drm: stop information leak of old kernel stack.

The following upstream stable patches were skipped due to having been previously applied as a CVE:

  * can: add limit for nframes and clean up signed/unsigned variables

When importing, I skipped all drm patches from 2.6.32 for now. We need to carefully evaluate which ones to take or not and make them part of our drm33 stable.
