It's sort of the other way around in Rockbox. It assumes the file is in
m3u8 format _unless_ the playlist filename ends with .m3u. There's no
setting for it, so you can't easily change it in Rockbox. Maybe there's a
setting in Rhythmbox, to make it output "proper" m3u/m3u8 files? Not that
m3u is much of a standard... :)
