    Subject[ANN] removal of certain net drivers coming soon: eepro100, xircom_tulip_cb, iph5526

    (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_cb

    Unmaintained, 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.
