So. The plan is to put these interfaces in debugfs for now, with a
view to migrating stabilized interfaces into sysfs (or procfs or
whatever) once end-user requirements and use cases are better

If so, that sounds totally great to me. But it should have been in
the darn changelog! This is the sort of thing which we care about most

It would be helpful for reviewers to understand the proposed timeline
for this process, because the entire feature isn't really real until
this is completed, is it? I do think we should get this nailed down
relatively rapidly, otherwise people will be reluctant to invest much
into a moving target.

And I must say, I see dissonance between the overall maturity of the
feature as described in these emails versus the immaturity of these
userspace control interfaces. What's happening there?
