[Lucid][pull request] Update to Stable Kernel

Hi All,


The stable kernel has recently been released.


The upstream stable kernel brings in 97 patches (DRM excluded).
As we carry the DRM stack from 2.6.33, all patches that affect DRM have been
dropped and replaced by DRM patches from (3 patches).]

The upstream process for stable tree updates is quite similar in scope to the
Ubuntu SRU process. e.g: each patch demonstrably fixes a bug and is vetted by
upstream either by originating directly from Linus' tree or by being minimally
backported from some patch in Linus' tree.


This patch was added after the release of but seemed important enough
to have it added before the next release:
* Revert "module: fix __module_ref_addr()"

The following patch has been modified:
* drm/i915: Add initial bits for VGA modesetting bringup on Sandybridge.
