Drivers *can* implement the API in this patch.  It's just that the
 alternative API Jakub proposed would make for simpler driver code.
I.e. I'm not saying it's bad, just that it could be made better.
That's why I didn't hard-NACK it at any point.
I guess I should send the change I'm suggesting as a patch, rather
 than asking it of you — I'll try to get that done today.
(Although I'm not sure if it's really 'net' material or if I should
 wait for David to merge net into net-next and make the patch
 against the latter — wdyt?)
