I fully agree with Luis and Ivo that the proposed patch is invalid and
shouldn't be applied (the "code cannot and will not be deleted" anyway)..

[ Under "The New Normal" rules the code doesn't even have to work to be
merged and/or stay in the kernel so 9 months of code not being used by
any real user doesn't matter a tiny bit.. ]
