Hi Guys,


SRU Justification:

Impact: Atheros AR8132 / L1c Gigabit Ethernet Adapter fails to operate
in Jaunty due to the lack of driver support.

Fix: Backport the atl1c driver from Karmic back to Jaunty.

Testcase: Install and run a default Jaunty image and confirm that the
nic fails to be detected nor works. Install the patched
linux-backports-modules-jaunty package, reboot, and confirm this nic is
now detected and working.

Bug reporter has tested and confirmed the default driver in Karmic works
and that the backported driver to Jaunty also works.  The pull request
is below.  I've attached the patches rather than inlined as it's a
rather large diff.
