Andi - Ubuntu has reverted this patch for both Lucid (2.6.32) and Natty
(2.6.38) as it appears to cause a networking regression, though we never
really figured out root cause. Empirically, reverting the patch solved
the issue. Eric Biederman theorized that it uncovered a user space issue
(trying to read before listen), but the bug reporter seems to have lost
interest in testing kernels so we couldn't ever pin it down.

We also decided that reverting this patch was likely OK because we
couldn't find any Launchpad reports of the Ooops mentioned in the patch
commit log, nor does a google search turn up any hits.
