As a very occasional kernel hacker who mostly codes by looking at other device drivers. If I model my code after obsolete code or documentation, I don't want source code compatibility. I want a compile time error message that is easy to google.
If there is a flag day, could someone do people like me a favor? Attempt to compile a function written in the old style, with headers for the new style, then paste the error message into a comment attached to this article. Or if the details change, the article describing the updated change.
If I forget about this change when it matters and I make the mistake, google will lead me to an article that tells me the right way to do it.
