OK its been over 1 month without any replies on this patch which just
removes commented out code.

All the maintainers below bounce and the only e-mail not bouncing is
for Sreekanth Reddy <sreekanth.reddy@avagotech.com>, he hasn't been
seen active on linux-next since Jan 12 2015 when he did a driver bump
for mpt2sas to 20.100.00.00.

What's going on folks? And can this patch go in?
