Here's a consolidated pull request that I've been working on last
week, and more intensively since tglx dropped the 3.8-rt release
late last week.

This series is a collection of kernel fixes:

  [linux-yocto/3.8: fix perf host contamination]

Usability tweaks:

  [linux-yocto/3.8: allow kernel feature _appends to be overriden]

korg -stable updates:

  [linux/yocto-3.4: update to v3.8.4]
  [linux-yocto/3.4: import v3.4.36 -stable fixes]

And the introduction of 3.8-rt:

  [linux-yocto/3.8: introduce v3.8.4-rt1]
  [linux-yocto/3.8: qemuarm boot fix]

Due to the timing of this request, I've made sure to do extra build and
boot testing on the changes. 

I found a minor issue with the 3.8.4 -stable update on MIPS, which I've fixed
and boot tested. And 3.8.4-rt didn't initially boot on qemuarm, I've also
fixed it and boot tested sato under the -rt kernel. Darren and I both talked
about the -rt release, and there's value in making sure that the base -rt
release for 3.8 is part of the main 1.4 release, and it has no impact on
existing boards, builds or recipes .. so it is completely safe and isolated
from that point of view.

I've built all architectures at this point, and booted at least 
core-image-minimal, with sato builds running as I type up this pull request.
