Subject: [PATCH] x86: Remove a.out support
Date: Thu, 13 Jan 2022 17:01:15 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220113160115.5375-1-bp@alien8.de> (raw)

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de>

Commit

  eac616557050 ("x86: Deprecate a.out support")

deprecated a.out support with the promise to remove it a couple of
releases later. That commit landed in v5.1.

Now it is more than a couple of releases later, no one has complained so
remove it.
