$('#some_select').val() results in "use of attributes' specified attribute is deprecated" warning on firefox.

jquery is referencing the "specified" property on an Attr object, this is depreciated with Firefox 7, and always returns true. see

the problem appears to be at line 2630 of 1.7.1:

return attributeNode && attributeNode.specified ?

Bump it up ..still present in 1.8b2

Though it seems not to be in the same place

 valHooks: {
	option: {
		get: function( elem ) {
			// attributes.value is undefined in Blackberry 4.7 but
			// uses .value. See #6932
			var val = elem.attributes.value;
			return !val || val.specified ? elem.value : elem.text;

Fix #11397. Shush Firefox warning by re-breaking #6932 for BB 4.7.

At this point BlackBerry 4.7 (and related ancient browsers) should be scarce (released circa 2008) so #6932 will be closed wontfix for this edge case.

This reverts commit e866893fd29b0328ebc282cf0ba716e6f87384c3.

Failures in IE6 when this is removed, unfortunately.

Moving these all under #12072. At this time we are not in need of any additional "me too", "hey I see this on my console", or "when are you going to fix this" messages. We are aware of the issue.
