[stable] kernel upload to p-u

 I think we're nearly ready for a kernel upload to proposed-updates.
Here's the current list of changes queued for a stable upload.

I've reverted the forcedeth changes for #439219 until we get some
testers for them.

The last thing I'm waiting for is some final feedback about a
backported fix for the intel_agp regression in #438458. After the
merge of the last security upload, this has been the biggest blocker
imo since it fixes a regression introduced in r1.

linux-2.6 (2.6.18.dfsg.1-14) UNRELEASED; urgency=high

  * [bluetooth] Fix panic caused by race between RFCOMM socket layer and
    RFCOMM TTY layer. Thanks to Mikko Rapeli. (closes: #394742)

  * Add pci ids for Intel ICH9 controllers, see #435877
  * [hppa] remove misuse of global_ack_eiem, fixing a race condition that

    (closes: #440127)
  * Fix a minor denial of service issue that allows local users to disable
    an interrupt by causing an interrupt handler to be quickly inserted/removed.
    This has only been shown to happen with certain serial devices so can only
    be triggered by a user who already has additional priveleges (dialout
    group). (closes: #404815)
