I am not threatening anything that code is in ODP _today_ with that
patchset i was factering it out so that i could also use it in nouveau.
nouveau is built in such way that right now i can not use it directly.
But i wanted to factor out now in hope that i can get the nouveau
changes in 5.2 and then convert nouveau in 5.3.

So when i said that code will be in ODP it just means that instead of
removing it from ODP i will keep it there and it will just delay more
code sharing for everyone.
