Well, I said "future work" before having seen where this patchset is
going. So no, in that case, the usual kernel development process is:
cleanups/fixes first - new features later.

You can see for yourself that piling more crap on what is an already
unreadable mess is only going to make it worse. So, in order to avoid
the maintenance nightmare, we clean up, streamline, document and then
add the new feature and all is shiny.

Thx.
