    SubjectRe: [GIT PATCH] Remove devfs from 2.6.12-git
    Date

    The downside of "disable-and-remove-later" is that it becomes
    too easy to just re-enable the Kconfig stuff rather than just
    fixing the userspace bugs. Expecting userspace to change at
    any point before it absolutely _must_ tends to be a formula
    for userspace never changing, sadly enough.

    If 2.6.13 doesn't remove devfs, when will it really go away?
