Your introducing a function without a user, making it very hard to
judge whether the API is well-designed for the callers or not.

I pointed this out as a systemic problem with this patch series in v3,
along with other stuff, but with the way this series is structured I'm
having a hard time seeing whether you implemented my other feedback or
whether your counter arguments to them are justified.

I cannot review and ack these patches this way.
