SRU Justification

Impact:
   The upstream process for stable tree updates is quite similar
   in scope to the Ubuntu SRU process, e.g., each patch has to
   demonstrably fix a bug, and each patch is vetted by upstream
   by originating either directly from Linus' tree or in a minimally
   backported form of that patch. The 2.6.32.18 upstream stable
   patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu
   kernel as well.
