Lucid update to stable release

Bug #744921 reported by Tim Gardner

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 patches are in the stable release:

aio: wake all waiters when destroying ctx
shmem: let shared anonymous be nonlinear again
PCI hotplug: acpiphp: set current_state to D0 in register_slot
xen: set max_pfn_mapped to the last pfn mapped
x86: Cleanup highmap after brk is concluded
PCI: return correct value when writing to the "reset" attribute
Prevent rt_sigqueueinfo and rt_tgsigqueueinfo from spoofing the signal code
ext3: skip orphan cleanup on rocompat fs
procfs: fix /proc/<pid>/maps heap check
proc: protect mm start_code/end_code in /proc/pid/stat, CVE-2011-0726
fbcon: Bugfix soft cursor detection in Tile Blitting
nfsd41: modify the members value of nfsd4_op_flags
nfsd: wrong index used in inner loop
uvcvideo: Fix uvc_fixup_video_ctrl() format search
ehci-hcd: Bug fix: don't set a QH's Halt bit
USB: uss720 fixup refcount position
USB: cdc-acm: fix memory corruption / panic
USB: cdc-acm: fix potential null-pointer dereference
USB: cdc-acm: fix potential null-pointer dereference on disconnect
Input: xen-kbdfront - advertise either absolute or relative coordinates
SUNRPC: Never reuse the socket port after an xs_close()
fs: call security_d_instantiate in d_obtain_alias V2
dcdbas: force SMI to happen when expected
