SRU Justification:

Impact: SMP machines can hang when using PCI based atheros devices (not PCI 
express).

Fix: Two cherry picks from 2.6.27.22 stable

Testcase: Network traffic on SMP based hosts with Atheros pci based devices

Note: Those have been proposed by Luis (maintainer)

-- 

When all other means of communication fail, try words!
