Correct, since the plan is for these to land through other maintainers'
trees. But still it would be nice if we had them earlier just to see of
other maintainers don't seriously oppose the idea. To that end it is
probably good to reference the discussion with Linus in the cover letter
and the email with common infrastructure, explaining why converting to
common defines instead of keeping filesystem specific ones was done.
