It also does not have hit upstream as well. While for arm I think we could
go ahead of stable, I would prefer to have it upstream, so I can add that
commit id as reference.

This is just minor nitpick, but is there a specific reason that this definition
does not use the same layout as the definitions above?

SRU: arm: fix singal restart when Old EABI enabled
 
I have applied the patch to mvl-dove on Karmic (creating a new kernel version)
and pushed the result.
