Default Update to v2.6.38.4

Pushed to Natty master-next.

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/769042

SRU Justification


The upstream process for stable tree updates is quite similar in scope
to the Ubuntu SRU process, e.g., each patch has to demonstrably fix a
bug, and each patch is vetted by upstream by originating either directly
from Linus' tree or in a minimally backported form of that patch. The
v2.6.38.4 upstream stable patch set is now available. It should be
included in the Ubuntu kernel as well.
