I am trying to protect Stephen Rothwell's time by checking that the IB folks 
don't plan to add a call to this in their tree while we remove the function 
in net-next.  There's supposed to be a call in the IB driver.  I don't know 
why there isn't one or whether they are planning to fix it for .37.  I see 
the potential for a linux-next conflict and I am trying to avoid it.  #ifdef 
doesn't help, if it's not needed we can remove it for good.
