Sorry, but you know full well that is not a justification for _any_
chunk of code to be included in the main kernel tree. Staging is fine,
but to add a new kernel/user api that looks at first glance, to merely
duplicate the existing in-kernel apis needs a very good explaination for
why it needs to be included.
