[Bryan, expediting these to ensure they hit the next upload as testing
is stalled on arm.]

I am proposing these three for the fsl-imx51 2.6.31 based ARM branch.
This represents a combination of a back-port of the devtmpfs patch which
was done by Bryan Wu and the upstream stable versions of the fixes thereto.

This is required if we are to use these kernels with current mountall and
upstart on lucid.  These have been tested by Mobile and confirmed to fix
their boot issues.
