I hate l7-filter and wish it would go away.

I would not suggest spending time on the problem, as if I hear that 
someone else is going to add a package that does something similar, I'll 
go and behead them.

As for other options: You could just install the patch to the filesystem 
and require the user to apply it. Other packages do/did this, e.g. hdaps

But the only real solution is this: get the patch merged upstream, or 
equivalent functionality offered in the mainline kernel. Everything else 
is working against the flow of the kernel.
