These patches contain the following linux kernel bug fixes:

Description:
kernel: Software watchdog crashes.
Symptom:
If the software watchdog timer expires the machine panics instead of doing a restart.
Problem:
The software watchdog calls machine_restart from its timer interrupt function. machine_restart calls console_unblank which checks for interrupt context and triggers a BUG() if the code is in interrupt context.
Solution:
Avoid the call to console_unblank in machine_restart if the function has been called in interrupt context and oops_in_progress is not set.
Problem-ID:
22671
Description:
lcs: Unpredictable results after cable pull/plug-in.
Symptom:
Device not operational anymore after cable pull/plug-in. Unpredictable results occured, e.g. kernel panic using cards of type QD8F.
Problem:
Stoplan command and delete multicast address command were not proper recognized by OSA card under heavy network workload.
Channel/device error checks missing in interrupt handler.
Solution:
Missing error checks in interrupt handler added. LCS device recovery improved. Schedule recovery on card's problems or cable plug-in.
Problem-ID:
17213
