ACK. These patches only touch jbd2 and ext4 which was not default for jaunty.
Hence potential for breakage (if any) is very low.

Nevermind the bug-related comment in the other thread. Your 0/n email got
separated from the rest.

[PATCH] UBUNTU: [Hardy SRU] LP#310760 Fix the MIC of the Lenovo webcam problem

SRU JUSTIFICATION

IMPACT: The MIC of the Lenovo webcam doesn't work after launching the
camera, because of the i2c command that turn on/off the LED for the
camera is wrong and will impact the MIC function.

FIX: By snooping the USB traffic from Windows and extracting the correct
i2c commands that turn on/off the LED. The patch goes to the V4L/DVB
tree contains other bug fixes that introduced from the following two
2.6.29 commits
6af4e7a V4L/DVB (10424): gspca - vc032x: Add resolution 1280x1024 for
sensor mi1310_soc.
a92e906 V4L/DVB (10420): gspca - vc032x: Webcam 041e:405b added and
mi1310_soc updated.
I only merge back the LED part, since Hardy doesn't have that problem.
The patch is already accepted by the V4L/DVB branch and will be merged
into upstream kernel later.
http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/rev/49966c5f2052

TEST: This patch work fine with the Lenovo webcam I have.

[Hardy-LUM] SRU: Add backported igb-next driver

SRU Justification:

Impact: The Intel 82576 network card is not supported on Hardy but newer motherboards are shipped with these.

Fix: Add the current Intel standalone igb driver under a new name and with already supported PCI IDs removed
to LUM. Both the old and new driver can be used concurrently.

Testcase: Load old and new driver in parallel to check for concurrency. Successfully tested on real
hardware (see report)
