Bummer. I wasn't aware Alasdair had taken those patches into his DM tree
yet. I thought he was waiting for my block layer patches to land.

The accessor function patch in my patch series was explicitly put in
place to enable changing the API without affecting users. And we've
tried to be careful about staging these patches in the right order
throughout all the involved trees.

Sorry about the slip-up :|
