Sure, but IF that solution is ever adopted it will apply to top of tree
kernels. In the meantime users of long term kernels (enterprise, LTS,
other) need to be able to use this feature.

I understand that Ingo (and probably you as well) have a disdain for the
kernel module approach mentioned above and it is not the preferred
approach. But given the resistance for over *4 years* to solutions to
this problem the module does provide a solution for the existing user base.
