Well, we don't guarantee such compatibility in general,
so I'd like to make it clear that people shouldn't expect this combination
to work, and if more complex patches are submitted, we'll likely NOT
integrate them.

The init.c change is clearly already on the edge of kludgy changes and is
NOT ok as is, it requires a clear comments explaining why it's there.

OK with the comment changes.
