  [ Ben Hutchings ]
  * Rename source package to 'linux' (Closes: #636010)
  * Convert source package format to 3.0 (quilt)
    - Convert patch system to quilt, except for the 'orig' patch series
    - Use xz compression for upstream and Debian tarballs
    - README.source: Update description of patch system to match current
    - linux-patch-debian: Remove; it is no longer necessary for GPL
      compliance and does not work with our current patch management
  * linux-image: Change package name for bugs to 'src:linux' (Closes: #644198)
  * DFSG: video: Remove nvidiafb and rivafb, which include apparently
    obfuscated code (Closes: #383481, #609615).  The nouveau driver supports

  * Build-Depend on kmod or module-init-tools, not just the latter
  * test-patches: Recognise the rt featureset automatically

    modules as required even if they are built-in in some configurations
  * filter: Allow to create sk-unattached filters
  * proc: Backport hidepid mount option from Linux 3.4 (Closes: #669028)

    sock_alloc_send_pskb() (CVE-2012-2136)
  * macvtap: zerocopy: fix offset calculation when building skb
  * macvtap: zerocopy: fix truesize underestimation
  * macvtap: zerocopy: put page when fail to get all requested user pages
  * macvtap: zerocopy: set SKBTX_DEV_ZEROCOPY only when skb is built
