Isn't it a bit late in 2.6.24 to add new functionality, especially when there
isn't an in-tree user for it in 2.6.24?

You are right, there are several users of this function currently under
development but I'm pretty sure all of them are targeting 2.6.25 or greater.
With that in mind, I think the prudent thing to is to wait and push this
upstream for 2.6.25.
