It's now thrown out, and I think Andrew already had a patch in his tree
that reverted this.

I'll be bringing it back eventually, but first we are going to work out
all the kinks by probably putting these changes in the next few SuSE
alpha releases to see what shakes out in userspace that we need to go
fix.

It's not 2.6.19 material at all, so don't worry :)
