This has been caused solely by me being buried in other things, and there
was always something else that overrode trivial tree in priority.

My original plan was to revive trivial tree for 4.15, as there are quite a
few patches in the queue (that still apply). But if it's generally
considered annoying (although I am pretty sure we don't suffer from what's
in the openstack thread), I don't object and can ditch it completely.
The thing is that such patches will keep coming anyway, and I think they
have the value (although the priority is really lower than other changes
of course). I still believe that having greppable comments, for example,
is nice to have.
