Actually there is a larger issue too:

I would love it if someone (kernel janitors?) went through the kernel
code and dug out all the comments like this. "should be gone by 1.3" :)
  "should be removed in 2.5". etc. This should be a pretty easy, but
time consuming job that even newbies could sink their teeth into.

Then we can go through the list and kill the issues, or the comments.
