It seems that message hadn't got through. Any suggestions as to how we
could make sure it does in future?

The usual answers are (in order of preference):
1) don't remove userspace APIs
2) don't remove userspace APIs
3) Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.txt
4) don't remove userspace APIs

It would be good if we could combine #3 with some form of
__deprecated... can we make that work for ioctls in userspace?
