Sounds sane. I know I have booted several kernels with it compiled out
but just because you can do without it doesn't mean that something
isn't using it.

Hmm. The question is where do I want the put the warning message?

When the code is compiled out?
When the code is compiled in?

Probably both places at this point, and using the rate limited printk
I think instead of just the 5 printks that sys_bdflush uses...

I will cook up an incremental patch once I get some sleep.
