As it’s info log level and not warning or notice, these message are
useful in my opinion. You could downgrade them to debug, but I do not
see why. If customers do not want to see these info messages, they
should filter them out.

For completeness, is there an alternative to list the unsupported
features from the firmware for example from sysfs?


Kind regards,

Paul
