Default SRU for bug 209971

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/209971

SRU Justification:

Impact: Generates huge amount of logdata

Fix description: The fix adds code to assign the correct values to
enable the radio GPIO. Without this the driver (or HAL) is generating a
hoge amount of log error message data (see
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/209971/comments/18).
The patch itself is straight forward and is verified to fix the problem.

Patch:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.24.y.git;a=commitdiff;h=dcd8f5bca3782f180c0284 46710edc16ebce73f6

Testcase: Load the driver modules on a system with the hardware and
check the system logs. Has been verified through PPA build (see
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/209971/comments/19)

ACK from me. Please apply. While you are at it, can you investigate the
CVE differences?

(cd ubuntu-hardy; git log) > hardy.log
(cd linux-2.6.24.y; git log) > stable_24.log
cat hardy.log stable_24.log | grep "CVE-"|sort|uniq
