[PATCH] Add removal schedule of register_serial/unregister_serial to appropriate file

From: Russell King
Date: Thu Jun 23 2005 - 08:38:15 EST

I hope there's no need to explain this in the email; if there is, the
entry isn't good enough. 8)

However, wouldn't it be a good idea if this file was ordered by "when" ?
A quick scan of the file reveals a couple of overdue/forgotten items
(maybe they happened but the entry in the file got missed?):

What: ACPI S4bios support
When: May 2005

What: register_ioctl32_conversion() / unregister_ioctl32_conversion()
When: April 2005

more efficient. You should really be using libraw1394 for raw1394
access anyway.
Who: Jody McIntyre <scjody@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
+What: register_serial/unregister_serial
+When: December 2005
+Why: This interface does not allow serial ports to be registered against
+ a struct device, and as such does not allow correct power management
+ of such ports. 8250-based ports should use serial8250_register_port
+ and serial8250_unregister_port instead.
