SubjectLinux 2.6.26-rc8

It hasn't been a week, I know, and this is a pretty small set of changes
since -rc7, but I'm going to be mostly incommunicado for the next week or
so, so I just released what will hopefully be the last -rc.

Or maybe not.

It depends on how good you all are while I'm not looking.

Anyway, most of the bulk of the changes here are to Xen and to KVM in
particular, which shows up as a rather unusual dirstat: 65% is in
arch/x86 (counting the asm-x86 changes too). The rest is mostly random
stuff, the appended ShortLog gives a reasonable idea. Several bugzilla
entries are hopefully now closed.

Here's the dirstat (whee - just 5% in drivers - that's a new one):

2.4% Documentation/DocBook/
4.3% Documentation/hwmon/
6.7% Documentation/
24.2% arch/x86/kernel/
5.2% arch/x86/kvm/
25.3% arch/x86/xen/
54.8% arch/x86/
55.4% arch/
3.2% drivers/hwmon/
5.2% drivers/
5.2% fs/nfs/
7.5% fs/
4.4% include/asm-alpha/
10.0% include/asm-x86/
16.5% include/
3.5% kernel/

and the - this time really fairly short - shortlog is appended.

What you don't see from this (maybe I should add some shortlog mode that
shows the size of the patches too) is that a lot of them are really just a
couple of lines (which is also why the KVM changes stand out so much -
they're bigger).
