Userspace is already well-confused and doing things that look silly from
a high-level viewpoint and none of the potential solutions we've
proposed to the various problems has been acceptable yet.

So we widened the scope of our thinking, and suggested if we just break
this kobject/uevent connection in the kernel, it might give us easy
solutions to several of the seemingly-intractable
userspace-processing-of-uevent problems at once.
