    yes they are; the current situation prevents things that are used in
    only a set of old unmaintained legacy drivers (read: ISDN) as being
    marked __deprecated because they add too many warnings, while the API
    really should be marked deprecated..

    think for example the entire sleep_on() family of API's (which basically
    are impossible to use race-free in 2.6)
