The need to use utsrelease seems very prominent in external drivers.
But a quick grep turned up only a single staging driver in-tree that
include utsrelease.
So whatever problem this driver solves using utsrelease it is not shared
with the rest of the in-tree drivers.

So no - it is not a stop-gap. It is more a "is it really needed?".
