The path to making this better is to have more formal API specifications
for what the kernel exports in terms of functionality, etc.  In some places
we may not have APIs that we need to use but do not qualify for this yet.

If you have a list of troublesome structures, functions, etc, it may be 
posting that so others can look at it and potentially help you reduce 
its size.

How many of the "invalid uses of config" have you created PRs for?
