    Might the recent discussion on the exporting of sys_open() and
    sys_read() be an example here? There would appear to be a consensus
    that people should not have used those functions, but they are now
    proving difficult to unexport.

    Perhaps the best use of the namespace stuff might be for *future*
    exports which are needed to help make the mainline kernel fully modular,
    but which are not meant to be part of a more widely-used API?
