    Not really. The Kernel Summit and an audit of drivers convinced me
    that changing every driver simply wasn't feasible.

    *You* convinced me not to break any driver source code: every time you
    dropped my patches I went back and implemented another compat macro 8)

    Cheers,
    Rusty.
