These patches have actually been upstreamed and landed in v3.4-rc1:

  Sentelic's originally posted patches: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/3/23/1

  Merged into Linus tree: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git;a=commit;h=2f7fa1be66dce77608330c5eb918d6360b5525f2

The 6 patches below are applicable to the current precise kernel, and
have been verified to work by at least Ike and the bug reporter.

I know this is really late in the dev phase, but this is a hwcert block
issue, and I'm posting here in the hope that we can find some solution
out.  There are several options from my understanding:

  1) get the patches to be accepted by -stable

  2) a dkms package

  3) get a minimal patch to enable this so to reduce the possibility
     of regression to minimal

  4) merge this series as is

While 1) is not likely, and 2) is definitely what we want. Are there
any other options?
