Yes, that's fine, I just wanted to speak this out - there is a
probability that someone gets excited and creates some instrumentation
to kbuild to automatically detect bad things and then Stephen could
easily use that.

WRT "not necessary" - well, I think it is always better to cut bad
things before they are merged, rather than afterwards.

But anyway, let's forget about this.
