Subject[RFC PATCH 00/19] ide: remove deprecated host drivers (part 1)
Date
Hi,

IDE subsystem has been deprecated since 2009 and the majority
(if not all) of Linux distributions have switched to use
libata for ATA support exclusively.

This patchset removes IDE host drivers that:
- have been replaced by their corresponding libata PATA host
drivers (which have been available since 2006/2007)
- are not used by any defconfig

Having duplicated drivers for the same hardware doesn't seem
to be good thing in the long-term perspective for Linux as
- testing efforts are divided between two drivers/subsystems
(while there is less and less PATA systems left in use)
- having two drivers for the same hardware confuses users

Please note that all the hardware supported by IDE host drivers
nominated for removal remains supported by correspoding libata
PATA host drivers.

PS If this patchset is accepted I would like to continue
removal of IDE host drivers in part 2 which will happen after
remaining defconfigs which still are using IDE host drivers
get converted to use corresponding libata PATA host drivers.

Best regards,
