No mistake, it's clearly marked as "HACK", and the cover letter states
this is not for merging but for the design discussion. You wanted to see
patches for discussing the topic, so I sent you my current draft.

On my development machine with -rc2 I still use .poll_mask. I will be
able to drop the patch once we have -rc3 built, unless .poll_mask gets
reintroduced later in the cycle. If you know of some macro to check
whether we're -rc2 or -rc3 of 4.18 I'm all ears, otherwise grep'ing in
the Makefile and defining some custom macro would be an alternative.

Some other places in this series have similar, not-commented-out
compatibility code to allow me to test individual modules quickly
without having to build and boot a full kernel for every change. Like
some sk function got/lost a parameter at some point. Originally I kept
compatibility with openSUSE Leap 42.3's 4.4 kernel, now 15.0's 4.12. has a Makefile and
script for that purpose, plus a small C example to send a packet.
