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,
