I didn't investigate myself, but probably it's a history of changes
you are missing.
That said, in time when the above mentioned commit was made there was
no clear approach like we have nowadays.
But I might be mistaken.
In any case, just add a (small) remark that you were aware of that
change and do not see any problems while doing yours.

Alas.

I see. Yes, we have to have compile time *and* run-time bisectability in place.

I am okay with either that Linus will like.

All of them? Recent patches for IRQ chip template do something like

girq = &...;
girq->foo = bar;
...
ret = request_irq(...);

...and here no more girq->baz = gaz; lines.

Funny, that's what I;m referring to.
