SHR-U is also moving to 2.6.32 ASAP, in sync with moving to fsogsmd
(because ie sysfs nodes needs to be updated with kernel update)

It's used in SHR kernels and after WSOD fix is KMS driver at least as good as

defconfig and all patches used in SHR are available
(gdrm-2.6.32 branch, stable patch, work-around for wm8753
build with gcc-4.4)
