I think I will split this up into the following set of patches:
- rename the functions and add a macro for the old names
- rename all in-kernel usages
- rename the staging tree usages
- remove the macros
the first patch can go in to Linus's tree now, to make it easier for the
2nd and 3rd patches to live in linux-next easier as we might need to
look at the usages in other development trees before we can add the last
