 Dear RT Folks,

 I'm pleased to announce the 3.8.13-rt11 release.

 changes since v3.8.13-rt10:
 - use wakeup_timer_waiters() in wake_up() so we do nothing on nort
   kernel. Sent by Zhao Hongjiang
 - a fix for a cpu down problem. If kthread is pinned to the same CPU
   which is going down we will spin for ever and wait until kthread
   leaves the CPU. This does not trigger on v3.6-rt because the workqueue
   code there does not create a new process in the notfier callback.
   Reported by Qiang Huang.
 - a check if we lose PF_THREAD_BOUND in the workqueue code. Shouldn't
   happen yet it seems it happens from time to time.
 - save the cpu mask of the application which disables a CPU. Prior this
   change the application which put a CPU down was allowed to run on any
   CPU if it was restricted to a specifc one. Reported by Zhao Chenhui.

 - the SLxB PowerPC, e500 problem is removed from the list without a
   change. The problem triggers even on a v3.6 non-RT kernel after 1-2
   days of runtime on my MPC8572DS. I don't see any problem so far on
   MPC8536 which is mostly the same HW except it is UP but MPC8572DS
   crashes also in UP mode so I belive it is a HW problem.

 Known issues:

     - Steven reported a missing acpi from the v3.6 release.
     - a "fix" for i915 leads to high latencies due to wbinvd(). Not sure
       what is the best thing to do here.
