Linux 2.6.30

As mentioned last week, -rc8 was the last -rc, and there really isn't any 
point in delaying the real release any more.

I'm sure we've missed something, and I know we have some regressions 
pending. At the same time, we do need the coverage of a eral release, and 
on the whole it looks pretty good. We've fixed a few regressions in the 
last few days, and there's always 2.6.30.x.

The appended shortlog from 2.6.29-rc8 is not very interesting, but it's 
about as good as it gets. Not a lot of changes (just 72 non-merges, 
according to git rev-list), and most of those are pretty small and 
trivial. We're talking mostly one-liners, with just a couple of them 
standing out (in fact, just mainly the DPMS handling cleanup in 
drm_crtc_helper.c)

As to the whole set of changes since 2.6.29, the best place to look is 
probably just

as usual. One thing that doesn't seem to be mentioned there is that we're 
hopefully now done with the suspend/resume irq re-architecting, and have 
switched to a new world order. Although I suspect lots of details will 
still change, of course.

And as usual, I'll wait a day or two before really opening the merge 
window. I want people to actually test this one rather than immediately 
sending me "please pull" requests. Deal?
