== Precise SRU Justification ==
BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1246465

We provide updated compat-wireless stack packages for Precise via LBM in
order to allow users access to updated or newer wireless drivers while
remaining under the umbrella of the LTS release.  A v3.10, v3.11, and v3.12
compat wireless stack is now available via upstream backports [1]. We
should provide these in LBM for Precise.

==Fix ==
The following LBM and linux-meta pull requests provide the compat-wireless
v3.10, v3.11, and v3.12 stacks:

      UBUNTU: Add v3.11 compat-wireless meta package
      UBUNTU: Add v3.12 compat-wireless meta package

== Impact ==
LBM is an elective install so there shouldn't be any potential for
regression. For those who do choose to install, this will provide an
updated compat wireless stack.  I have also built and tested against each
of these on both i386 and amd64.

Thanks,
Leann
