    I don't see any place where this is not either:
    - in documentation or
    - already removed again in a second patch in -mm or
    - only in patch context

    Since the patch context issues are all in patches by Greg that went into
    Linus' tree after 2.6.12-mm1 I doubt there will be many problems after
    merging them.
