SubjectLinux 2.6.28-rc8

Nothing overly exciting here. Lots of small things, mostly in drivers
(with some defconfig updates for m68k and mips making the diffs bigger).

There's some uncomfortably big changes to the intel DRI code, but most of
that is all about fixes to the new i916 "GEM" code that is only used by
development X servers, and is a new feature, so it shouldn't be able to
cause regressions.

Perhaps more interesting is simply the release scheduling issue. I'm
getting slowly ready to do a real 2.6.28, but I don't think anybody really
wants the merge window to be around the holidays. So the question is
really whether to

(a) just make the -rc's go on a few more weeks, and do 2.6.28 after xmas

I like this, because alledgely people are debugging things, and we'd
get a more stable 2.6.28.


(b) release in a week or two, but just allow for possibly extending the
merge window due to people being drunk on eggnog..

I like this because let's face it, we get more and better bug
information after releases, and everything _should_ be ready for
merging *before* the merge window anyway.


(c) some other crazy scheme that somebody comes up with in a drug-induced

So I haven't quite decided on that thing yet, but I'm open to suggestions.
