Yeah, but you know, I very good when it comes to find/remember
something obvious only right after posting a patch (I rarely
posted a patch not followed by a v2 lately). A kind of
post-posting only memory, something that becomes common with me,
I guess I need to start learning how to live with it :)

That said, some developers who don't read lwn (or other kind of
people gifted by the post-patch-posting memory power) may come and try
to remove the bkl there, since it's not visible in lkml archives
or in the master branch of the x86 tree.

Ah, for example hpa has just committed my patch :-)
