On second thought... Not pushed.

I'm going to hold off on pushing this one to oss for now because I'm just not
comfortable with it yet.  I can pull this in sans the removal notices if you
want.  Lets discuss whether the removal of deprecated mount options and sysctls
is acceptable before announcing an intention to remove them.  I'm trending no,
but I can be flexible if this really is ok.

I'm thinking of the 3.3 glusterfs and 3.8 pulseaudio reakeage.  And I would
really like to have a nice holiday weekend. ;)
