    "The reason that check_region() is deprecated is that it is racy.
    It could report that a region is available and then another driver
    could immediately reserve that region, since check_region() doesn't
    have any reservation capability."

    /me wonders why check_region has not been killed, it has been
    deprecated for years; killing it would force developers to fix it
    and would help to identify unmaintained drivers...
