This should be the last -rc, and it's really been quieting down. There's
131 commits there, and it's all pretty trivial. For example, in the
dirstat below, most of the arch/x86 changes are due to some
changes to fix problems with older binutils, not actual code changes. And
on powerpc, it's all the ps3 defconfig update.

8.7% arch/powerpc/configs/
8.7% arch/powerpc/
2.6% arch/sparc/configs/
5.3% arch/sparc/kernel/
2.8% arch/sparc/mm/
11.2% arch/sparc/
5.9% arch/x86/kernel/
7.0% arch/x86/
28.3% arch/
2.6% drivers/acpi/
3.5% drivers/input/
7.6% drivers/net/
13.5% drivers/scsi/mpt2sas/
30.3% drivers/
7.7% fs/9p/
3.4% fs/ext3/
8.6% fs/notify/inotify/
21.4% fs/
3.5% kernel/
4.0% lib/
3.0% net/9p/
5.8% net/
2.2% sound/core/
3.2% sound/

So apart from the trivial but somewhat bulky stuff like that, there's a
sparc TLB loading upddate, there's a mpt2sas driver update, and there's
the plan9 filesystem update. And there's a few fs/notify cleanups and
fixes that will hopefully put the inotify problems behind us for good.
Knock wood.

The rest is pretty much one-liners with a couple of "few-liners".

I'll be gone for the next week, but it should be quiet. But pester the
usual suspects (aka "maintainers") about any bugs you see, and they'll fix
it while I'm diving. And then we'll have a final release for labor day.
