I'm not sure where you got that these should be reverted. The only one
that required reversion was ata_piix/piix, which I don't even see up
there, so our primary bug would still exist.

1) We need a kernel out ASAP. And I mean like yesterday, that simply
reverts the ata_piix/piix PCI ids moving.

2) Let's not go making huge changes and complicate the problems we
already have.

Half the things you reverted above will break current installs and/or
cause compile problems. Some of the other reversions will keep things
from booting and a few more will actually cause us to fall back on
contractual obligations.

Please, revert back to the last upload to feisty-security, revert the
ata_piix/piix PCI id move, and do an immediate upload after posting the
changelog here. We need this done tomorrow.

Once I get the process down for -updates and -security uploads for
kernels, we can move these commits. We can't just drop them.
