As a first step, let's stop _adding_ this language.

Given what I've seen from other communities and what I know of the kernel
community, I don't think we're going to get consensus on some massive
global search/replace any time soon. However, I think we can get started
on making this change with just stopping further introductions. (I view
this like any other treewide change: stop new badness from getting
added, and chip away as old ones as we can until it's all gone.)
