      acpi, nfit: Remove ecc_unit_size · d4dd7091
      Dan Williams authored
      The "Clear Error Unit" may be smaller than the ECC unit size on some
      devices. For example, poison may be tracked at 64-byte alignment even
      though the ECC unit is larger. Unless / until the ACPI specification
      provides a non-ambiguous way to communicate this property do not expose
      this to userspace.
      
      Software that had been using this property must already be prepared for
      the case where the property is not provided on older kernels, so it is
      safe to remove this attribute.

      netfilter: remove ip_queue support · d16cf20e
      Pablo Neira Ayuso authored
      This patch removes ip_queue support which was marked as obsolete
      years ago. The nfnetlink_queue modules provides more advanced
      user-space packet queueing mechanism.
      
      This patch also removes capability code included in SELinux that
      refers to ip_queue. Otherwise, we break compilation.
      
      Several warning has been sent regarding this to the mailing list
      in the past month without anyone rising the hand to stop this
      with some strong argument.

      ieee1394: remove the old IEEE 1394 driver stack · 66fa12c5
      Stefan Richter authored
      The drivers
        - ohci1394 (controller driver)
        - ieee1394 (core)
        - dv1394, raw1394, video1394 (userspace ABI)
        - eth1394, sbp2 (protocol drivers)
      are replaced by
        - firewire-ohci (controller driver)
        - firewire-core (core and userspace ABI)
        - firewire-net, firewire-sbp2 (protocol drivers)
      which are more featureful, better performing, and more secure than the older
      drivers; all with a smaller and more modern code base.
      
      The driver firedtv in drivers/media/dvb/firewire/ contains backends to both
      ieee1394 and firewire-core.  Its ieee1394 backend code can be removed in an
      independent commit; firedtv as-is builds and works fine without ieee1394.
      
      The driver pcilynx (an incomplete controller driver) is deleted without
      replacement since PCILynx cards are extremely rare.  Owners of these cards
      use them with the stand-alone bus sniffer driver nosy instead.
      
      The drivers nosy and init_ohci1394_dma which do not interact with either of
      the two IEEE 1394 stacks are not affected by the ieee1394 subsystem removal.
      
      There are still some issues with the newer firewire subsystem compared to
      the older one:
        - The rare and quirky controllers ALi M52xx, Apple UniNorth v1, NVIDIA
          NForce2 are even less well supported by firewire-ohci than by ohci1394.
          I am looking into the M52xx issue.
        - The experimental firewire-net is reportedly less stable than its
          experimental cousin eth1394.
        - Audio playback of a certain group of audio devices (ones based on DICE
          chipset with EAP; supported by prerelease FFADO code) does not work yet.
          This issue is still under investigation.
        - There were some ieee1394 based out-of-the-mainline drivers.  Of them,
          only lisight, an audio driver for iSight webcams, seems still useful.
          Work is underway to reimplement it on top of firewire-core.
      
      All these remainig issues are minor; they should not stand in the way of
      overall better user experience of IEEE 1394 on Linux, together with a
      reduction in support efforts and maintenance burden.  The coexistence of two
      IEEE 1394 kernel driver stacks in the mainline since 2.6.22 shall end now,
      as announced earlier this year.

      ieee1394: remove old isochronous ABI · 53c96b41
      Stefan Richter authored
      Based on patch "the scheduled removal of RAW1394_REQ_ISO_{SEND,LISTEN}"
      from Adrian Bunk, November 20 2006.
      
      This patch also removes the underlying facilities in ohci1394 and
      disables them in pcilynx.  That is, hpsb_host_driver.devctl() and
      hpsb_host_driver.transmit_packet() are no longer used for iso reception
      and transmission.
      
      Since video1394 and dv1394 only work with ohci1394 and raw1394's rawiso
      interface has never been implemented in pcilynx, pcilynx is now no
      longer useful for isochronous applications.
      
      raw1394 will still handle the request types but will complete the
      requests with errors that indicate API version conflicts.
