Subject: [GIT PULL] Additional x86/nuke386 for v3.8-rc1

Hi Linus,

One final 386 removal patch.

The following changes since commit 11af32b69ef7ee64c7d8848cad71a6f3749d9e37:

  x86, 386 removal: Document Nx586 as a 386 and thus unsupported (2012-11-29 13:28:39 -0800)

are available in the git repository at:

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git x86/nuke386
