I could imagine merging something like just the bkl_ioctl rename: if it
breaks, it won't compile, so there is little risk, and _if_ it helps the
next merge window I could merge it early.
But it looks like people are trying to avoid it entirely, and there is not
a way in *hell* I will take some big and scary "push BKL down" patch that
is clearly _not_ 99% mechanical and clearly _can_ introduce major and
subtle bugs while compiling.
