Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] Remove dead references
Date: Fri, 25 Jun 2021 13:04:16 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Dear all,

on 2021-02-22, I reported that:

The domain lookup for fails for quite some time now. Hence,
webpages, the patchwork instance and Ralf Baechle's email there is not
reachable anymore.

In the discussion of that patch series, Kurt Martin promised to get back online. Four months have now passed and the webpage is
still not back online. So, I suggest to remove these dead references.
Probably, we do not lose much if the webpage never comes back.

The domain lookup for fails for quite some time now. Hence,
webpages, the patchwork instance and Ralf Baechle's email there is not
reachable anymore.

Here is in more detail what I did to create this patch series:

First, I updated all sections in MAINTAINERS for references with
Then, I also quickly scanned through the whole git tree for
references, and step-wise filtered out obvious copyright holder lines and
references to old email addresses.

  git ls-files | xargs grep "" | \
    grep -v -i "Copyright" | grep -v -i "MODULE_AUTHOR" | grep -v -i "written" | \
    grep -v "Ralf" | grep -v "Maciej" | grep -v "Yoichi" | grep -v "Ladislav"

I removed dead references or replaced them with their living counterparts if
available. However, these two cases remain and somebody might want to have a look:

  1. case in ./arch/mips/include/asm/page.h:

 * RELOC_HIDE was originally added by 6007b903dfe5f1d13e0c711ac2894bdd4a61b1ad
 * (lmo) rsp. 8431fd094d625b94d364fe393076ccef88e6ce18 (  The
 * discussion can be found in
 * It is unclear if the misscompilations mentioned in
 * also affect MIPS so we keep this one until GCC 3.x has been retired
 * before we can apply

  Decision: Keep as is. Although GCC 3.x is long retired, it is unclear what is and if it has been already
  applied or not.
  Question: does anyone know how to identify this patch?

  2. case in ./drivers/parport/parport_ip32.c: tree is referred to in an old To do item:

 * To do:
 *      Fully implement ECP mode.
 *      EPP and ECP mode need to be tested.  I currently do not own any
 *      peripheral supporting these extended mode, and cannot test them.
 *      If DMA mode works well, decide if support for PIO FIFO modes should be
 *      dropped.
 *      Use the io{read,write} family functions when they become available in
 *      the tree.  Note: the MIPS specific functions readsb()
 *      and writesb() are to be translated by ioread8_rep() and iowrite8_rep()
 *      respectively.

  Decision: Keep as is; anyone that wants to follow up on this will probably
  understand that the reference is outdated anyway.

Please comment on these clean-up patches on this administrative topic.

Patch set applies cleanly on next-20210624.

Changes since v1:
    "arch: mips: update references to current linux-mips list"
    "MIPS: SGI-IP27: fix spelling in Copyright"
  has been already applied.
