Linus wants to drive ahead, and ignore the collision issue for now,
and has been dismissive of the risks, he wants a result not heart
searching, and the list comments exhibit a confusion with the
engineering problem of avoiding accidental collisions v deliberate sabotage.

Since this is not a show-stopper, and getting the BK replacement in place
is time critical, and if you look at the code it is easy to extend the
content key, LET US just leave this issue for now.
