We all feel the pain of inelegance right? I think it's clear that this
system will not last (but there's no other immediate option) .. That
doesn't mean we should reject it, but we need to be clear that this
system will get replaced. So we should format the patches appropriately.
To me the userspace aspect is a permanent change .. If we could drop
that (or put it into debugfs) then it would make this a lot easy to
accept as a stepping stone.
