Plus the CONFIG_NET=n and other build failures.

This patch series was seriously rushed, and very poorly handled.

Yet I kept getting so much pressure to review, comment upon, and
ultimately apply these patches.  Never, ever, do this to me ever

If I don't feel your patches are high priority enough or ready enough
for me to review, then TOO BAD.  Don't ask people to pressure me or
get my attention.  Instead, ask others for help and do testing before
wasting MY time and crapping up MY tree.

I should have noticed a red flag when I have James Bottomly asking me
to look at these patches, I should have pushed back.  Instead, I
relented, and now I'm very seriously regretting it.

All the regressions in the net-next tree over the past several days
have been due to this patch set, and this patch set alone.

This code wasn't ready and needed, at a minimum, several more weeks of
work before being put in.

Instead, we're going to bandaid patch it up after the fact, rather
than just letting these changes mature naturally during the review
