I think that ~25+:1 ratio makes a good case for an
eventual conversion of the remaining uses.

Maybe it'd be useful to add a coccinelle/spatch
directory in scripts and add these scripts so
that files and subsystems can updated over time.

Perhaps add a checkpatch test as well though
that might be an interesting test to write in
