    SubjectLinux 2.6.24-rc8

    I do hate doing -rc's for so long, but I hate releasing when not feeling
    it's simmered enough even more. And the changes since -rc7 are bigger than
    the changes between -rc6 and -rc7 were (partly probably because people
    were still on vacation between -rc6 and -rc7, so we had something of a
    small trickle come in afterwards).

    That said, the changes here really aren't that big, and the shortlog is
    fairly boring. So I'm pretty sure this is the last -rc, and the final
    2.6.24 will probably be out next weekend or so. But in the meantime, let's
    give this a final shakedown, and see if we can fix any last regressions

    (I also get the feeling that more people are already working on 2.6.25
    features, so it's not like delaying 2.6.24 will help past some point
    anyway, but let's give it a few more days).

    Anyway: drivers, networking, some arch updates, and ACPI. A fair number of
    really small commits. I honestly can't really improve on the appended
    shortlog - there isn't any over-arching theme, except for "lots of small
    boring fixes".

    Which is as it should be, of course.
