Default APPLIED: Multiple remote denial of service in Linux bridge

Scot Doyle discovered that the bridge networking interface
incorrectly handled certain network packets. A remote attacker
could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial
of service.

Fixes for this issue have hit natty and later via mainline and stable.
Releases prior to natty are not affected. Following this email is the
one remaining patch required for natty/ti-omap4, this is a direct
cherry-pick of the upstream backport on natty/master.

Proposing for natty/ti-omap4.
