SubjectLinux 2.6.24-rc7

It's been two weeks since rc6, but let's face it, with xmas and new years
(and birthdays) in between, there hasn't actually been a lot of working
days, and the incremental patch from -rc6 is about half the size of the
one from rc5->rc6.

And I'll be charitable and claim it's because it's all stabilizing, and
not because we've all been in a drunken stupor over the holidays.

The shortlog (appended below) is short and fairly informative. It's all
really just a lot of rather small changes. The diffstat shows a lot of
one- and two-liners, with just a few drivers (and the Cell platform)
getting a bit more attention, and the SLUB support of /proc/slabinfo
showing up as a blip.

Both git trees and tar-balls/patches pushed out, should be mirroring out
within minutes. So there are no excuses to not try it out, and see if your
favorite regression has been fixed.
