Not necessarily saying you should.  We would certainly like to support the
current interface as it will be a pain for our users if newer kernels break
abi so the user space tools don't work.  And there is also that the compat
interface  is the only interface currently supported.  The goal was to
declare our intent to deprecate the interface and move to a new
interface interface in time.
