I had the same idea originally, but as it isn't completely nontrivial to
disable the new code and against the wishes of upstream I decided to
leave that work for people needing it on pre-3.12 kernels.

With that said, if upstream isn't interested in integrating such a patch
then it isn't really nice having to carry it in Buildroot either.
