David or Linus, please revert 9e6db60825ef7e7999abc610ce256ba768e58162

It was merged without the API it needed, causing build breakage.

Acked-by: Jeff Garzik <>


Since it was an arch patch to a driver I cannot build, I made the
[mistaken] assumption that your sending it to me was an indication that
it should actually be merged :) Especially with a subject like "fix
build breakage", for a platform I cannot easily build...

Are there any process tweaks that could be made here? Maybe -mm stuff
sent to maintainers could be tagged, noting dependencies on other -mm
patches that are not yet upstream?
