How well do "git am", "quilt import" and friends cope with ever changing
directories?

How about using drivers/staging/this_driver/TODO and (or) its Kconfig
help text to leave a note about the plans for this driver?

The worry that these will be ignored like
Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.txt is being ignored may apply to
the path name based solution too, I'm afraid.

(Besides, Greg's release announcements are a good channel for this.
These announcements are actually picked up by the specialized press.)
