    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.
