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  -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  are a revert and a defconfig update. 

A lot of small stuff, fixing a few regressions (and at least one bugzilla  entry going back to 2.6.24). The small stuff does matter. Please test…
