I completely agree with you on both points. When I first saw this
interface, the first question that popped in my mind was "why is it even
here?" And the very next question I asked myself was "why is this isn't
a macro?"

As far as I can see, except for arch/ia64/kernel/head.S, among the codes
that actually uses this interface, others are wrapped within #if 0 ...
#endif blocks. So effectively, this is not being used at all :)
