It looks like it's already underway, at least as far as the author is
concerned.  From http://gaugusch.at/kernel.shtml :

Update as of 2008-03-15: Several maintainers in the Linux kernel have
started to reconsider their position on the feature. The patch as even
made a brief appearance in some development versions of the kernel
2.6.25 (it has been reverted because deemed too likely to bring bugs,
but a new approach, patch v0.9, is already available for next
development cycle).
