Well dang. I was waiting for the discussion to converge, blissfully
unaware that the thing was sitting in mm-stable :( I guess the

fooled me.

I think it's a bit premature to revert at this stage. Possibly we can
get to the desired end state by modifying the existing code. Possibly
we can get to the desired end state by reverting this and by adding
something new.

If we can't get to the desired end state at all then yes, I'll send
Linus a revert of this patch later in this -rc cycle.
