Linux 2.6.25-rc8

,----[ Quote ]
| No cute April 1st shenanigans, just a regular -rc release that happened to
| come up today because I was waiting for the input layer oops-fixes to be
| ready and tested.
|
| I think the dirstat continues to be fairly informative, with arch/ and
| drivers dominating as usual. And within arch, a fair amount of the line
| noise are all those defconfigs. I wish we had some saner way of handling
| that, but apart from causing noise in the statistics there aren't any real
| downsides.
