Linux 3.8-rc2

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Wed Jan 02 2013 - 22:37:02 EST

It's a new year, people are getting back to work, and trying
desperately to forget the over-eating that has been going on for the
last two weeks. And hey, to celebrate, here's -rc2!

The patch is fairly small, and largely dominated by the GPU updates
and the trivial removal of __devinit/exit in the i2c layer. But
there's some filesystem work (ext4, ecryptfs, ceph) and some VM fixes
in there to. And some late ARM OMAP cleanups.

The shortlog is appended, my "mergelog" looks like this:

Wolfram Sang:
i2c __dev* attribute removal

David Miller:
networking fixes

Eric Biederman:
namespace fixes

Guenter Roeck:
