When (if) it becomes necessary to lock away other subsystems, the
wrapper can be easily reintroduced.

It's an exported function, and we already have an out-of-tree module
(awaiting future submission once the dust clears about this series)
which relies on it.

See the LKML discussion, "Subject: tp_smapi conflict with IDE, hdaps",
and especially Alan Cox's sample code for this. (That got me
embarrassed into writing the rest of thinkpad_ec...)
