I was able to backport the two patches to Trusty. It required quite a few prerequisite commits. The following commits were backported to a Trusty test kernel:

The test kernel can be downloaded from:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~jsalisbury/lp1470250/AlexFaulpeltzPatch/trusty/

Can this kernel be tested to see if it resolves this bug?

Note, that both the linux-image and linux-image-extra .deb packages need to be installed.
