    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?
