I was actually expecting it to go with the other VLA removal patches,
but if the plan is to try to just get them in individual maintainer
trees, I guess I can just take this directly.

So if it would be a single-commit pull request, I'll just take it as a
patch. I guess it could go through -mm, but since I was involved in
the discussion anyway, I also don't mind just taking it directly. If
it causes problems, I can curse at myself.
