This code has been around for a long time, so there may be quite some
out-of-tree drivers/patches depending on the spelling, and as with
every (?) API the change should be done through
But now that we have Coccinelle, it might turn out to be quite easy
to get rid of this camel-case spelling.
Btw, if you set off a discussion on the lkml regarding this, please CC me :).
