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

       git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.38.y.git

    TEST CASE: TBD

       The following patches are _not_ applied from the 2.6.38.7 stable release since they were already in Natty:

thinkpad-acpi: module autoloading for newer Lenovo ThinkPads.
