    ACK: Given that a) both Horst and Christoph think the ioctl interface
    needs cleanup but proposed cleanup interfers with existing
    functionality (cmb), and b) later cleanup would change the
    user-interface of eer, we should rush neither the ioctl change nor
    eer into .16 until the maintainer is back afaics.
