That's a mistake, that export should have been in patch3. Talel, pls
fix that in your next spin.

Yup, the user are going to be drivers in other subsystems, so
coordination is a bit tricky, which is I think why Talel wanted to
submit that now, but the patches for those other drivers aren't quite
ready yet so we can hold onto that one for the time being.

It's nothing nefarious :-) Just coordination issues.
