=== Status: Quantal Development Kernel  ===
  We have received a freeze exception and are planning to upload the
  3.5.0-18.28 today.  This will provide critical bug fixes for the 12.10
  release.  The bugs include:
   * 1063061 "please backport support for EFI vars ) 1KB"
   * 1061599 "beagle: omap3: usb is dead"
   * 1021471 "clone() hang when creating new network namespace"
   * 1030233 "not have bluetooth usb 0489:e046 Foxconn / Hon Hai"
   * 717970 "After sleep, key presses get lost and trackpad is jittery"
  As a reminder, because we are in kernel freeze, all patches are subject
  to the SRU policy and only critical bug fixes will warrent an upload.
  Non critical bug fixes and changes will be targetted to the first
  Quantal SRU kernel. As usual, all kernels will also get uploaded to the
  q-lts-backport [1] PPA to help facilitate testing of the 12.10 kernel in
  12.04.  We welcome anyone to please install, test, and let us know your
  feedback.
