Looks good to me.

I don't see the need. These are simple wrappers around existing
EXPORT_SYMBOL() exports, and there's little concern that these
interfaces might disappear in the future causing us pain with out of
tree modules as these don't touch anything in the core.

Sure.

True, or just delete the module_exit because this functionality can't
be built as a module, so the exit path is already dead code.

Sure, sounds good.
