We don't break userspace. Just not. This is not an option.

The RPMB subsystem simply has to provide the rpmb character
device the same way the MMC subsystem did, or provide an
in-kernel backend to the MMC subsystem so that it can provide
the same device. Whatever solution is best.

No deprecation and deletion and breaking userspace. Ever.
