Well, when this was discussed this before we concluded (via your input)
that this should stay in place for the initial merge.

So it's a bit late to drop this now, as the PULL request has gone out to
Linus, and has been acked by Roland. But if you think it should
removed, I'm happy to drop it in the first set of post-merge
target-pending rc-fixes.
