This is almost certainly the last -rc, and I debated even doing it. But rather than just do 2.6.30, I decided that I'd be better off doing a last¬¨‚Ä† -rc8 and then a real release probably this weekend.
This has mostly driver and arch updates, with perhaps the intel drm/kms and network driver changes standing out, but there's powerpc, blackfin and arm updates too. Admittedly, the two biggest parts of the powerpc update¬¨‚Ä† are a revert and a defconfig update.¬¨‚Ä†
A lot of small stuff, fixing a few regressions (and at least one bugzilla¬¨‚Ä† entry going back to 2.6.24). The small stuff does matter. Please test...
