Actually, I had a previous version of that patch where I only
Ignored that paramteter. But after thinking again and seeing
How the long time ago depreacted function are still there I
Removed the parameter in order to force apps to make the change.
You can ignore that argument at API level, so all users of the
API not need to have change (in that momment). That should be
Only few line change.

But havi that merged in tidspbridge make more pressure to merged
The dependencies, if not maybe that wont have event for .38. But
That is just my opinion if you all are agree revert is the best
Option I am ok, but I looks like more work reverting and rebaseing
specially because it is a big change.
