Whiteboard

Headline: Ubuntu LEB contains the linux-linaro kernel 2011.07, including the additional Ubuntu sauce on top, available for both stable and development images.
Acceptance: Kernel build with CI, making sure at least one kernel update per week is done (can be done manually for now or automated by daily/weekly builds at a PPA). Kernel available at the Overlay (at least for Natty) and integrated by the upstream based hwpacks.

[rsalveti, Jul 18, 2011]: dropping the week 28 build as it'd still be based on 2.6.39, and the release one is based on 3.
[rsalveti, Aug 9, 2011]: properly integrated and tested.
