This seems to fly in the face of Linux kernel convention. The policy has always been, "keep in-tree code clean; screw out-of-tree code." I can't count the number of times that policy has been implemented. Here, we have in-tree code dirtied by having two functions for the same thing, for the purpose of backward compatibility with some out-of-tree code.
I wonder why there wasn't objection.
