Linux 3.2 rc2

"Linux 3.2-rc2 is out there now. Well, the git trees are there (kernel.org and github), and the tar-file should be all done, but the patch is still uploading. One thng worth noting: I got the new release scripts right, so now the -rc2 files are found in their proper location under "v3.x/testing", unlike -rc1 that got put directly in "v3.x". I'll fix the -rc1 location when I'm somewhere with better network. And for being an -rc2 release of a pretty large merge-window, it seems to be quite reasonably sized. In fact, despite this having been the largest linux-next in a release in our linux-next history (I think), rc2 has the exact same number of commits since rc1 as we had during the 3.1 release.

About half the changes are architecture fixups (m68k and arm, with some powerpc and a smattering of others) Of the rest, about half is drivers (much of it drm), and the rest is "filesystems and sundry updates".

The shortlog is appended for people who enjoy that level of detail.
