As a fourth option, Steve Langasek suggested reverting the change, and
putting it in with the first upload of .31 (when the linux source package
version will exceed the current linux-meta source version).

This seems like it would work fine, too, so long as it's done in the right

1. Upload patched linux-meta to remove linux-doc (but don't bump ABI)

2. Upload new linux to rename linux-doc-x.y.z to linux-doc (and bump ABI)

3. Upload linux-meta (and bump ABI)

Make sense?
