Ok, I guess I have to take this patch, as the other one is so bad :)

But, I need a very large comment here saying why we are poking around in
a kref and why we need to do this, at the expense of anything else.

So can you respin this patch with a comment here to help explain it so
we have a chance to understand it when we run across this line in 10
years?

thanks,

greg k-h
