Subject[PATCH 7/7] BKL: move CONFIG_BKL to staging
Date
Instead of moving the actual code to staging for stuff that
depends on CONFIG_BKL, this moves just the configuration
option it depends on.

As a consequence, the remaining non-staging drivers that use
the BKL (i830, appletalk, ipx, x25, adfs, hpfs and ufs)
implicitly depend on staging until they get fixed.

This sets 2.6.39 as the arbitrary date when we actually remove
the option along with its last users.
