This would cause us to provide a own patchset which makes it difficult for us.
This change was done upstream and probably they want to go this direction.

It is bad but is see it as you and i hope Linus will revert it but for me it seems that desktop pc's have a low priority. I write only a bug report because Roman wished it.
