    Again, standard procedure for removal of user-visible API:
    * next devel and following stable branch - use of that API is
    possible but produces a warning
    * devel branch after that - API removed.

    The fact that nobody had even started that with procfs is a separate story.
    But no matter what user-visible API changes we start now, the earliest point
    when the old stuff can be removed is 2.7.
