Thanks Martin.

I've applied this to our ubuntu-raring git repo.  I did some minor
changes to the commit message to mark the patch as SAUCE (our team
terminology to indicate the patch is not yet in Linus' tree).  I also
inserted the BugLink as Andy noted.  I anticipate one more upload prior
to Kernel Freeze on Thurs so this patch should be available in that upload.

Thanks,
Leann
