Then why not patch MAINTAINERS, and orphan it, as per usual practice? $ git log --oneline MAINTAINERS | grep -i orphan > It also doesn't appear to have any active users so I doubt anyone will > miss it. > It's not unusual that any Linux driver written more than 5 years ago "doesn't appear to have any active users". If a driver has been orphaned and broken in the past, and no-one stepped up to fix it within a reasonable period, removal would make sense. But that's not the case here. I haven't used this driver for a long time, but I still own PowerMacs with firewire, and I know I'm not the only one. > Signed-off-by: Chris Boot <bo...@bootc.net> > --- > MAINTAINERS | 9 - > drivers/target/Kconfig | 1 - > drivers/target/Makefile | 1 - > drivers/target/sbp/Kconfig | 12 - > drivers/target/sbp/Makefile | 2 - > drivers/target/sbp/sbp_target.c | 2350 ------------------------------- > drivers/target/sbp/sbp_target.h | 243 ---- > 7 files changed, 2618 deletions(-) > delete mode 100644 drivers/target/sbp/Kconfig > delete mode 100644 drivers/target/sbp/Makefile > delete mode 100644 drivers/target/sbp/sbp_target.c > delete mode 100644 drivers/target/sbp/sbp_target.h >
