It's the horror and shouldn't be used. Realized we're not clear on

 One issue with the helpers is that they require that drivers handle completion

+Somewhat related is the legacy_cursor_update hack, which should be replaced with
+the new atomic_async_check/commit functionality in the helpers in drivers that
+still look at that flag.
