    Yes, but that driver was soundly rejected by the network driver
    maintainers, so I wouldn't go around showing that as your primary
    example of how to use this interface :)

    The point is valid, I don't think these apis should go into the tree
    without a driver or some other code using them. Otherwise they make no
    sense at all to have in-tree.
