Thank you for your feedback.
Yes, indeed there is no enough information/documentation about
legacy/modern style, and its plan
(= all driver will be switched to modern, legacy will be removed, etc, etc..).

So, can you agree about these ?
1) Add enough information/documentation about legacy/modern style and its plan.
2) Add dirty pointer fixup patch as workaround
3) switch to modern style as much as possible

1) and 2) are needed immediately.
3) needs more time, but we can try

Best regards
