Not sure. Andrew Warfield or Julian Chesterfield probably will know. I would
guess it's probably a backport of AIO changes from a more recent kernel, but
I'm not certain about that.

Backport of GSO patches from 2.6.17,18,... Done by Herbert Xu as part of his
big netfront/back reworking and upgrade. This will mostly go away when we
upgrade to 2.6.18.

> tpm_plugin_2.6.17.patch

IBM-requested backport of TPM changes in 2.6.17. This will go away when we
upgrade to 2.6.18.
