== Quantal SRU Justification ==
We have been providing newer compat-wireless stacks in previous releases
via LBM.  It has been requested to do the same for Quantal.  Now that
v3.6 is available, provide the newer v3.6 compat-wireless stack via
linux-backports-modules-3.5.0

Additionally, we have been providing the alx driver in previous Precise
LBM compat-wireless stacks.  alx has still not made it upstream yet. 
Continuing to provide this driver via the Quantal LBM v3.6
compat-wireless stack will enable users to continue to use the alx driver.

== Impact ==
There should be no risk of regression since this is a purely elective
install.  This has been build and install tested.

== Fix ==
There are two pull requests for this.  The first pull request officially
opens the ubuntu-quantal-lbm repo, removes obsolete code, and then adds
the compat-wireless v3.6 stack.  I'd note that the patch opening the
repo for Quantal assumes this would be uploaded with the first Quantal
kernel SRU, ie the 3.5.0-18 kernel.  We'll also need help from one of
our resident core-devs to get this uploaded the first time.  Afterwards
we can request the linux-backports-modules-3.5.0 package to be added to
our list of kernel package upload rights.  The second pull request adds
the corresponding linux-meta package entries and again takes into
account the ABI bump for the first Quantal SRU.

Actually it turns out that having the package in any PPA is enough for
its name to be known for adding to package sets.  I used this for
linux-signed.
