Linux 3.14 rc8

I delayed things a day from my normal schedule, hoping I’d feel more
comfortable doing a 3.14 release, but that was not to be. So here’s an
rc8, and I expect to do the final 3.14 release next weekend.

There wasn’t that much scary stuff going on, but there’s a few vfs
fixes still pending, and we did end up having some interesting core
fixes last week too (not new regressions, but newly detected by
Trinity. Kudos to Hugh Dickins for figuring them out and fixing the
causes). There’s also some networking fixes and random noise (mainly
MIPS). So I really wanted another week before release after all.
