5 of the patches are clean cherry-picks from upstream. Of the other 4
patches, one is strictly config updates, and the other 3 sauce patches
appear to do as claimed and are platform specific. I've been told by
Ike that he has fully tested these. With a target of landing in the
12.04.1 release, I think these should be pulled in for more widespread
testing to at least ensure we don't hit any regressions.
