    What?

    The "bogus" stuff is correct. That's how readX/writeX were _designed_ to
    work. The design was the correct one: make it easy to port old drivers to
    new architectures - that was what the thing was done for in the first
    place.

    It's the _new_ restrictions that people want to have that are bogus, and
    they are stuff that will wait for 2.3.x. Changing code for 2.2.x is not an
    option.
