After 5.0 is branched I would like to remove the LKM code and switch on the

Hard to tell from a distance... no objections, but I think it would be nice to have some description of what's new/better/different in the new framework.

Also: What's the replacement for lkm.4?

And: Would it make sense to mark the LKM framework as deprecated for 5.0?
Or should that happen for 6.0?
