SRU: modprobe isp1760 triggers kernel oops

SRU justification:

Impact: Updates from the 2.6.27.12 enabled the isp1761 module implicitly,
triggering a bug in the probe function as a side effect. This causes a kernel
oops at boot on machines with that hw.


Fix: Patch from upstream (2.6.28rc2, so Jaunty is not affected) which fixes the
probing code. Updated kernel has been verified to solve the problem. Changes a
limited to that specific driver.


Testcase: Boot with affected hw (see report).
