    but the main and fundamental question still remains unanswered (more
    than 3 weeks after Andrew asked that question): why was this piece of
    general infrastructure merged via net.git and not submitted to lkml
    ever? The code touching -mm does _not_ count as "review".

    Now that there was review of it and there is clearly controversy, the
    code should be reverted/undone and resubmitted after all review
    observations have been addressed. Just sitting around and ignoring
    objections, hoping for the code to hit v2.6.25 is rather un-nice ...
