That's what Greg did when he pulled stuff into staging, but there is
no reason not to do it outside of staging as well. We can simply put
the stub functions into Documentation/feature-removal.txt to ensure
that we don't forget about them :)

Yes, that way we do not lose the annotations. Replacing them, ripping
them out or whatever we agree on, is a nobrainer.

But it gets the drivers into the tree, so they are usable outside of
android as well and the delta between android and mainline shrinks
significantly.
