For the record, I'm not fan of this one. It is ABI change, not a
bugfix.

Yes, it makes kernel interface "easier to use". It also changes
interface in the middle of stable series, and if people start relying
on new interface and start putting extra spaces, they'll get nasty
surprise when they move code to the older kernel.

Best regards,
Pavel
