Hi Ben and Greg,

Please consider

  4ea418b8b2fa Staging: speakup: fix an improperly-declared variable

for application to the 3.0.y, 3.2.y, 3.4.y, and 3.5.y stable
trees.  Samuel Thibault (cc-ed) writes[1]:

| Speakup currently has a bug which can lead to a mere crash when using
| its goto function:
| "
| You can reproduce the bug by pressing numpad_insert, numpad_asterisk.
| As soon as you start typing a position, for instance 23y,
| the system will crash.
| "
| The attached patch is the upstream fix for it.

The driver entered mainline with that bug during the 2.6.37 merge
window, so earlier kernels shouldn't need this.
