Ugh. Even it they're obsolete, they shouldn't be dropped just like
that. *If* we are dropping them, we should warn people well in advance
(i.e. one release before, say). Otherwise people might get a bit unhappy
when stuff that used to work fine mysteriously breaks. Personally, I'd wait
for advice from the kernel people before dropping obsolete devices.
