The biggest problem with the changes was how and when they were done.
The source tree is in a "code slush" right now before we branch later
this year.  During this period, there's a higher requirement to have
discussions before things are committed.  Given the risks (or
perceived risks) of this commit, people were concerned about it.  I
believe that many of these changes will ultimately make it into the
tree, after proper review and testing.

I'd encourage people who are intested in this issue to join the
discussions on arch@ so that these efforts can be properly
coordinated.
