Tim,

No problem, I rebased TI OMAP4 patches on top of 2.6.35-19.25 Ubuntu
master branch. So we get these security patches automatically, since
Lean's already merged them.

Only one df0698be14c6683606d5df2d83e3ae40f85ed0d9 patch cause rebasing
conflict. I revert it firstly and applied a modified version after
rebasing.

Kees,

Is this URL still alive? I cannot access it, so I'm not sure whether
we need to apply this one.

Thanks,
