    SubjectLinux 2.6.27-rc8

    So yet another week, another -rc. This one should be the last one: we're
    certainly not running out of regressions, but at the same time, at some
    point I just have to pick some point, and on the whole the regressions
    don't look _too_ scary. And -rc8 obviously does fix more of them.

    Most of the changes since -rc7 are pretty small, and there aren't even a
    whole lot of them. The shortlog (appended) is just a couple of pages, and
    the diffstat is even smaller, but since the dirstat is a dense overview,
    I'll just put that here instead:

    4.6% arch/m32r/kernel/
    5.7% arch/m32r/
    9.5% arch/mips/pci/
    10.4% arch/mips/
    4.2% arch/x86/kernel/
    4.4% arch/x86/
    26.0% arch/
    3.5% drivers/usb/storage/
    10.4% drivers/usb/
    3.6% drivers/watchdog/
    23.8% drivers/
    11.5% fs/xfs/
    13.5% fs/
    3.7% kernel/
    9.8% net/9p/
    10.6% net/
    5.4% scripts/kconfig/
    5.9% scripts/
    7.4% sound/soc/codecs/
    8.4% sound/soc/
    10.1% sound/

    and it's actually more spread out than usual. Arch and drivers are just
    half of the patch even when combined.

    Give it a try,
