I read Lars' comments as something like: 
  There's still a lot of work to do, and it's not a foregone conclusion
  that any of this would hit mainline.

Maybe I extrapolated too far.  However, the kernel summit included
a reasonable bit of pushback on placing this in the kernel without
convincing arguments to the contrary.  So I think it's reasonable to
consider part of the work is still clearly defining that need.
