I don't suppose there's any clean way to throw a build error or a
printk_on_once() or something if we encounter an unconverted 'struct
file_operations', is there? I have this creeping fear that this patch will go
upstream during the merge window - as will 12 new staging/ drivers from authors
who didn't get the memo yet.

Other than the "missed converting a new usage" issue, it looks OK to me.
