IIRC, Michael actually sent patches for all uses in the entire kernel
previously, but relied on sub-maintainers to pick them up one by one.
Some patches already got 'Acked-by' replies, which I'd like to keep.

It's probably time to do a bigger sweeping change now and kill it for
good, bypassing the remaining maintainers that haven't acted so far.
We can certainly carry the patches related to arm-soc, and I think
it's worth trying once more to get the scsi patches merged, since there
is a bunch of them. Everything else can probably go directly as a
single pull-request to Linus, or perhaps via Andrew Morton.
