No, mainline won't get any device backends until .38 at the earliest -
.37 is closed for anything except bugfixes. But I'll maintain a .37
based tree with all the extra bits in it for full use.
However, with block backends specifically, we're considering doing
with a kernel-based backend altogether and deferring it to a usermode
process, so that will be independent of the kernel.
