[PATCH] Ubuntu-intrepid VMI bugfix

Some JVM workloads under VMI got broken in the i386 / x86_64
architecture merge as a result of a typo in LDT accessors.  This patch
has already gone upstream and into -stable trees.

It looks like only Intrepid kernel is affected.  I'm not sure if you
will pull in the fix from upstream before release or not or if this will
even make the Intrepid schedule as is, so I figured it's best to give
you a patch and let you decide.

Here's the upstream commit from Linus' tree for reference:

    x86: Fix broken LDT access in VMI

Thanks,

Zach
