I do hate doing -rc's for so long, but I hate releasing when not feeling 
it's simmered enough even more. And the changes since -rc7 are bigger than 
the changes between -rc6 and -rc7 were (partly probably because people 
were still on vacation between -rc6 and -rc7, so we had something of a 
small trickle come in afterwards).

That said, the changes here really aren't that big, and the shortlog is 
fairly boring. So I'm pretty sure this is the last -rc, and the final 
2.6.24 will probably be out next weekend or so. But in the meantime, let's 
give this a final shakedown, and see if we can fix any last regressions 

(I also get the feeling that more people are already working on 2.6.25 
features, so it's not like delaying 2.6.24 will help past some point 
anyway, but let's give it a few more days).

Anyway: drivers, networking, some arch updates, and ACPI. A fair number of 
really small commits. I honestly can't really improve on the appended 
shortlog - there isn't any over-arching theme, except for "lots of small 
boring fixes". 

Which is as it should be, of course.

It should be there, but it may take a while to mirror out. It's definitely 
there on the master site already (and gitweb shows it, so the git repo has 
already mirrored out at least to that site).

I see it,  thanks. Maybe I'm too anxious to get it :)
