Linux 3.18 released

It's been a quiet week, and the patch from rc7 is tiny, so 3.18 is out.

I'd love to say that we've figured out the problem that plagues 3.17
for a couple of people, but we haven't. At the same time, there's
absolutely no point in having everybody else twiddling their thumbs
when a couple of people are actively trying to bisect an older issue,
so holding up the release just didn't make sense. Especially since
that would just have then held things up entirely over the holiday

So the merge window for 3.19 is open, and DaveJ will hopefully get his
bisection done (or at least narrow things down sufficiently that we
have that "Ahaa" moment) over the next week. But in solidarity with
Dave (and to make my life easier too 😉 let's try to avoid introducing
any _new_ nasty issues, ok?
