    SubjectLinux 2.6.31-rc8

    This should be the last -rc, and it's really been quieting down. There's
    131 commits there, and it's all pretty trivial. For example, in the
    dirstat below, most of the arch/x86 changes are due to some
    changes to fix problems with older binutils, not actual code changes. And
    on powerpc, it's all the ps3 defconfig update.

    8.7% arch/powerpc/configs/
    8.7% arch/powerpc/
    2.6% arch/sparc/configs/
    5.3% arch/sparc/kernel/
    2.8% arch/sparc/mm/
    11.2% arch/sparc/
    5.9% arch/x86/kernel/
    7.0% arch/x86/
    28.3% arch/
    2.6% drivers/acpi/
    3.5% drivers/input/
    7.6% drivers/net/
    13.5% drivers/scsi/mpt2sas/
    30.3% drivers/
    7.7% fs/9p/
    3.4% fs/ext3/
    8.6% fs/notify/inotify/
    21.4% fs/
    3.5% kernel/
    4.0% lib/
    3.0% net/9p/
    5.8% net/
    2.2% sound/core/
    3.2% sound/

    So apart from the trivial but somewhat bulky stuff like that, there's a
    sparc TLB loading upddate, there's a mpt2sas driver update, and there's
    the plan9 filesystem update. And there's a few fs/notify cleanups and
    fixes that will hopefully put the inotify problems behind us for good.
    Knock wood.

    The rest is pretty much one-liners with a couple of "few-liners".

    I'll be gone for the next week, but it should be quiet. But pester the
    usual suspects (aka "maintainers") about any bugs you see, and they'll fix
    it while I'm diving. And then we'll have a final release for labor day.
