This patch series removes the private duplicates of PCI definitions in
favour of generic definitions defined in pci_regs.h.

This driver only uses some of the generic PCI definitons,
which are included from pci_regs.h and thier private versions
are removed from skfbi.h with all other private defines.

The skfbi.h defines PCI_REV_ID and other private defines with different
names, these are renamed to Generic PCI names to make them
compatible with defines in pci_regs.h.

All unused defines are removed from skfbi.h.

Rename the PCI_REV_ID and other local defines to Generic PCI define names
in skfbi.h and drvfbi.c to make it compatible with the pci_regs.h.

Include the uapi/linux/pci_regs.h header file which contains the generic
PCI defines.

Remove unused private PCI definitions from skfbi.h because generic PCI
symbols are already included from pci_regs.h.

It's good form to CC people who have commented on previous versions of
your series, so I added Stephen.

Why bother ? It's an ancient obsolete card ?

Do you even have one to test ?

I sincerely doubt anyone on the planet is using this card any more.

Thanks Alan!

Stephen Hemminger is suggesting removal as well. Makes sense to me.

David!

What would you recommend the next steps are? Would like driver removed?

That's a fair question.

Is there anything that would indicate that "this file is obsolete and
problems shouldn't be fixed"?  Nobody wants to waste time on things
that don't need to be fixed, but I don't know how to tell if something
is obsolete.

My naive assumption is that if something is in the tree, it's fair
game for fixes and cleanups.

I'd prefer to move the old, crufty, obsolete and generally
unsupported drivers to new directory trees and possibly
symlink those drivers to their current locations.

I suggested on the kernel summit list:
https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/ksummit-discuss/2019-June/006482.html

---

Perhaps a mechanism to move these old, generally unsupported
by an actual maintainer, and rarely tested drivers out of the
mainline drivers directory into a separate obsolete directory
would help isolate the whitespace and trivial api changes.

If you hadn't proposed the cleanups nobody would have said to remove
this driver.  Really if someone wants to go through the tree and
send removal patches for seemingly really unused drivers, that is
a separate piece of work unrelated to your cleanup.

While something still is in the tree we should clean it up from
stuff like this.

Therefore, I'll be applying v5 of your changes, thanks.
