NAK for 2.622 - this appears to be a highly speculative cleanup-style 
change that is not an appropriate submission so late in the Release 
Candidate cycle.

I would have expected this sort of change to have been brewing for a 
little while in -mm, via netdev#upstream perhaps.  As it is, this change 
has been zero testing exposure, which is not something we want in a -rc2 
or -rc3.
