SubjectRe: [2.6 patch] mark pci_find_device() as __deprecated
From

we can solve this btw; we could have a

#define THIS_MODULE_IS_LEGACY_CRAP_AND_WONT_GET_FIXED

that would turn __deprecated into a nop for those few legacy modules
inside the kernel that nobody really is looking after.

(and yes the define should be really offensive so that nobody will put
it in a maintained module, and maybe it should even cause the kernel to
printk something when such a module gets loaded into the kernel)

If this sounds like a good idea I'll code it up...
