No.

I was unhappy about a staging driver being added in rc7, but I went
"whatever, it's Greg's garbage"

There is no way in hell I will take a new filesystem in rc8.

Would you take that into stable? No, you wouldn't. Then why is this
being upstreamed now.

Honestly, I think I'll just delete the whole thing, since it shouldn't
have gone in in the first place. This is not how we add new
filesystems.
