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 v2.6.38.3 upstream stable
       patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
       kernel as well.

I happen to have hardware that is affected by this regression, will get a fresh natty install onto it and test the original natty kernel and the new kernel in proposed.

I tried activating the proposed updates in Natty to update to a newer kernel release, which would supposedly solve bluetooth issues regarding the ath9k chipset, but I'm still getting no devices listed when issuing a "hcitool dev" command. This is happening on a Dell Vostro V130 laptop.
