A number of us have talked about this in the plumbers Android track, and
a different proposal for how to solve this has been made that should be
much more resiliant.  So I will drop this patch from my queue and wait
for the patches based on the discussions we had there.

I think there's some notes/slides on the discussion online somewhere,
but it hasn't been published as the conference is still happening,
otherwise I would link to it here...

thanks,
