   What about implementing your alternative proposal in 2.5 and to use
   the current approach in a next 2.4.x kernel?

Just because you have some code depending upon this doesn't
mean that is the way we should implement it in 2.4.x

We should do it right from the start.  Because doing it properly
hurts no other driver except for yours. :-)
