Andy Whitcroft - Dec. 13, 2012, 8:27 p.m.
We have a need to backport the IP injection support to allow our images
to continue to work on Azure when these changes go live.  Without our
images will no longer be accessible.

Due to the high risk of regression rather than pull these changes into the
master kernels I have pulled these into a new LBM module in each release.
This new module linux-backports-modules-hv-* provides both the updated
hv driver and updated hv_kvp_daemon binaries.  This both reduces the
regression risk and also eases the difficulty of SRUing this into those
releases.  The virtual images will be preloaded with this new module.

As this functionality only makes sense on the -virtual flavours, I only
provide metapackages for those flavours (although binary packages are
currently produced as the packaging as yet has no way to short circuit
this).

The following four branches represent the necessary changes, for
precise:

  git://kernel.ubuntu.com/apw/ubuntu-precise-lbm master
  git://kernel.ubuntu.com/apw/ubuntu-precise-meta master

and for quantal:

  git://kernel.ubuntu.com/apw/ubuntu-quantal-lbm master
  git://kernel.ubuntu.com/apw/ubuntu-quantal-meta master

full pull requests are below my signature for those who like those kinds
of things.

The lbm packages have been build tested on i386 and amd64 and the relevant
hv packages tested on the Azure cloud by our cloud team and appear to
fix the issues at hand.  The meta changes have been reviewed by eye but
not further, so some care should be taken post application particularly
worth double checking the -meta package updates.

Please consider for Precise and Quantal.

LBM is an elective install so there should be no risk of regression
here.  Coupled with the test confirmation, here's my ack for Precise and
Quantal.

Looks like this got applied.
