The point I'm trying to make is that the code sharing for everyone is
moving the implementation closer to canonical kernel code and use
existing infrastructure. For example, I look at 'struct hmm_range' and
see nothing hmm specific in it. I think we can make that generic and
not build up more apis and data structures in the "hmm" namespace.
