I should have said "most obnoxious". They managed to put that terminology in
filenames, eg drivers/w1/slaves and Documentation/w1/slaves

In terms of number of lines of code using the word, it's only seventh
in drivers/:

$ for i in drivers/*; do c=$(find $i -type f |xargs grep slave |wc
-l); echo "$c $i"; done |sort -rn |head
5218 drivers/net
1341 drivers/dma
988 drivers/i2c
695 drivers/gpu
666 drivers/soundwire
665 drivers/spi
559 drivers/w1
461 drivers/infiniband
389 drivers/media
301 drivers/scsi
