No, it's definitely RELENG_7...and even if you used the wrong case all you'd 
do is delete everything in /usr/src

Really the only way to end up with 8.0-CURRENT is to build from HEAD, which 
means somehow /usr/src got populated, whether with a supfile with . in it or 
what is impossible to say.

Regardless, there's no real supported downgrade procedure.  It's probably 
possible, but you are in wizard territory.
