Default SRU: Stable update to 2.6.27.13

Coming in at "ridiculous speed"...

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/321474

SRU justification:

Impact: Many bug fixes imported from upstream stable tree (2.6.27.13)

Two patches change the ABI
* fs: sys_sync fix
* fs: remove WB_SYNC_HOLD

Fix:
* Linux 2.6.27.13
* fs: sys_sync fix
* fs: sync_sb_inodes fix
* fs: remove WB_SYNC_HOLD
* mm: direct IO starvation improvement
* mm: do_sync_mapping_range integrity fix
* mm: write_cache_pages more terminate quickly
* mm: write_cache_pages terminate quickly
* mm: write_cache_pages optimise page cleaning
* mm: write_cache_pages cleanups
* mm: write_cache_pages integrity fix
* mm: write_cache_pages writepage error fix
* mm: write_cache_pages early loop termination
* mm: write_cache_pages cyclic fix
* powerpc: is_hugepage_only_range() must account for both 4kB and 64kB slices
* hwmon: (abituguru3) Fix CONFIG_DMI=n fallback to probe
* dell_rbu: use scnprintf() instead of less secure sprintf()
* ath9k: quiet harmless ForceXPAon messages
* hwmon-vid: Add support for AMD family 10h CPUs
* clocksource: introduce clocksource_forward_now()
* sgi-xp: eliminate false detection of no heartbeat
* security: introduce missing kfree
* rt2x00: add USB ID for the Linksys WUSB200.
* PCI: keep ASPM link state consistent throughout PCIe hierarchy
* p54usb: Add USB ID for Thomson Speedtouch 121g
* lib/idr.c: use kmem_cache_zalloc() for the idr_layer cache
* 'kill sig -1' must only apply to caller's namespace
* IA64: Turn on CONFIG_HAVE_UNSTABLE_CLOCK
* drivers/net/irda/irda-usb.c: fix buffer overflow
* ALSA: hda - make laptop-eapd model back for AD1986A
* [ALSA: hda - Add automatic model setting for Samsung Q45] (skipped as already
applied)
* usb-storage: set CAPACITY_HEURISTICS flag for bad vendors
* usb-storage: add last-sector hacks
* tcp: don't mask EOF and socket errors on nonblocking splice receive
* r6040: bump release number to 0.19
* r6040: save and restore MIER correctly in the interrupt routine
* r6040: fix wrong logic in mdio code
* pkt_sched: cls_u32: Fix locking in u32_change()
* sctp: Avoid memory overflow while FWD-TSN chunk is received with bad stream ID
* ipv6: Fix fib6_dump_table walker leak
* pkt_sched: sch_htb: Fix deadlock in hrtimers triggered by HTB

When all other means of communication fail, try words!
