Linux Kernel 2.6.24-rc8 has been released
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).Linux 2.6.24-rc8
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 still.
