CVE-2011-2493
No description in the CVE. It appears this is a security issue
as an external USB stick could be crafted to trigger an oops
on insertion.

This issue was only introduced in v2.6.36-rc1 so maverick and earlier are
not affected. The fix has already hit oneiric via mainline. Following
this email is a single patch for natty and natty/ti-omap4 it is a clean
cherry-pick from mainline.

Proposing for natty and natty ti-omap4.
