Linux Kernel 3.8-rc4

Linus has released another RC towards the final version of Linux Kernel 3.8. The number of changes are smaller than RC-3, but there has been a bug reported in this RC in LKML by Shuah Khan.

Let's see if this gets fixed in the next RC because fixing this bug would have caused an old bug in RC-1 to re-appear again, at least from what what Khan has bisected on his machine. The temporary solution by Alexander Deucher was to disable the DMA Ring for now.
