SubjectLinux-2.6.13 : __check_region is deprecated

By compiling my kernel, I can see that the __check_region function (in
kernel/resource.c) is deprecated.

With a grep on the source code of the last release, I get this result.

drivers/pnp/resource.c:255: if (__check_region(&ioport_resource, *port, length(port,end)))
include/linux/ioport.h:117:#define check_mem_region(start,n) __check_region(&iomem_resource, (start), (n))
include/linux/ioport.h:120:extern int __check_region(struct resource *, unsigned long, unsigned long);
include/linux/ioport.h:125: return __check_region(&ioport_resource, s, n);
kernel/resource.c:468:int __deprecated __check_region(struct resource *parent, unsigned long start, unsigned long n)

Is there a function to replace this deprecated function ?

Why is it deprecated ?

Best Regards,
