Ideally, before 2.6.22-rc1. No set date, but generally it's a week or
two after merge window opens.

But even if you miss -rc1, we MUST get in the ioctl removal before
2.6.22 release. This is certainly exception to the "nothing but bug
fixes" rule -- or perhaps it is following the rule, if you consider the
ioctls' existence a bug :)

Getting the CodingStyle fixes in before 2.6.22-rc1 would be nice, but,
as I noted, lower priority than serious stuff like ioctl consideration.
