The changes since rc8 aren't big. There's about one third arch
updates, one third drivers, and one third "misc" (mainly some core
kernel and networking), But it's all small. Notable might be
unbreaking the x86-32 "sysenter" ABI, when somebody
(*cough*android-x86*cough*) misused it by not using the vdso and
instead using the instruction directly.
Full shortlog appended for people who care or are just curious.
