Stable kernel tree status, January 9, 2012

As 3.2 is now out, here's a note as to the current status of the different stable/longterm kernel trees.

Cc: stable

marking in the Signed-off-by: area. Once the patch hits Linus's tree, I will automatically be notified of it and it will be applied if possible. If it does not applied, you will be notified of that.
