    Subject[PATCH] Warn people that ipchains and ipfwadm are going away.
    From
    Date
    Name: Warn that ipchains and ipfwadm are going away
    Status: Trivial
    Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>

    At the recent netfilter workshop in Erlangen, we was decided to remove
    the backwards compatibility code for ipchains and ipfwadm. This will
    allow significant cleanup of interfaces, since we had to have a
    mid-level interface for the backwards compatibility layer to use.

    Start off with a warning for 2.6.9, so any remaining users have a
    chance to migrate. Their firewall scripts might not check return
    values, and they might get a nasty surprise when this goes away.
