    Subject[FINAL WARNING] Removal of deprecated serial functions - please update your drivers NOW
    As per the feature-removal.txt file, I will be removing the following
    functions shortly:

    * register_serial
    * unregister_serial
    * uart_register_port
    * uart_unregister_port

    However, there are still some drivers which use these functions:

    drivers/char/mwave/mwavedd.c: return register_serial(&serial);
    drivers/char/mwave/mwavedd.c: unregister_serial(pDrvData->sLine);
    drivers/misc/ibmasm/uart.c: sp->serial_line = register_serial(&serial);
    drivers/misc/ibmasm/uart.c: unregister_serial(sp->serial_line);
    drivers/net/ioc3-eth.c: register_serial(&req);
    drivers/net/ioc3-eth.c: register_serial(&req);
    drivers/serial/serial_txx9.c: line = uart_register_port(&serial_txx9_reg, &port);
    drivers/serial/serial_txx9.c: uart_unregister_port(&serial_txx9_reg, line);

    These drivers really really really need fixing in the next few days
    if they aren't going to break. I hereby ask that the maintainers of
    the above drivers show some willingness to update their drivers.

    Unfortunately, it appears that some of these drivers do not contain
    email addresses for their maintainers, neither are they listed in
    the MAINTAINERS file. (mwavedd and serial_txx9).

    Please note that this is the last warning folk will have before the
    functions are removed.

    In addition, the following drivers declare functions of the same name.
    The maintainers of these need to look to see why, and eliminate them
    where possible.

    drivers/serial/crisv10.c:register_serial(struct serial_struct *req)
    drivers/serial/crisv10.c:void unregister_serial(int line)
