(GregKH cc'd for his deprecated list)Though this has already been mentioned, I thought I would send out a reminder. The following net drivers are slated for removal "soon", in the next kernel version or so:
1) iphase (iph5526 a.k.a. drivers/net/fc/*) Been broken since 2.3 or 2.4. Only janitors have kept it compiling. 2) xircom_tulip_cbUnmaintained, and does not work for all xircom 32bit cards. xircom_cb, on the other hand, works for ALL xircom 32bit cards.
3) eepro100 Unmaintained; users should use e100.When I last mentioned eepro100 was going away, I got a few private emails saying complaining about issues not yet taken care of in e100. eepro100 will not be removed until these issues are resolved.
