Yep. It came along over from the cbe_cpufreq driver, which also does
it. I'll post a patch tomorrow or Monday unless someone else beats me
to it (the driver has already been merged).

Sure, but keeping up with the API churn during other patch merging is a mess. It's easier to
make one final pass over all new code and fix it up once more later during the merge window.
