Subject: [GIT PULL] Delete IXP4xx boardfiles replaced by device trees
Date: Fri, 13 Aug 2021 15:14:01 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
Message-ID: <20210813131401.lWKHHkO2s78XPv-gyNOLetD7VjLig3J4uyEm_rgjpxY@z> (raw)

Hi SoC folks,

this concludes the first big chunk of IXP4xx cleanup and DT conversion
by deleting a majority of the boardfiles now supported by the device

The details of which boardfiles are deleted and the two that are kept can
be found below. The idea is that all devices except the Omicron ones
will keep being supported, but as device trees. Omicron has publicly
stated that they have no interest in keeping supporting the boards,
if someone anyway steps up and need them, scratch device trees
exist on the mailing list.

Since there were a few Kconfig fixes in this rc-phase some collisions
could occur in Kconfig. But I hope not.

Please pull it in!

  ARM: ixp4xx: Delete the Freecom FSG-3 boardfiles (2021-08-13 14:52:12 +0200)

This deletes the following IXP4xx boardfiles:

- NAS100D
- D-Link DSM-G600
- Omicron
- Gateway WG302v2
- Arcom Vulcan
- Avila
- Intel reference designs
- Coyote and IXDPG425
- GTW5715
- Freecom FSG-3

In each case except Omicron, the board has been replaced by
a corresponding device tree and tested where someone
volunteered: Marc Zyngier has tested Arcom Vulcan and Freecom
FSG-3 and I have tested NSLU2 and Avila for example. All
that were tested boot to prompt, some devices may need some
more massage before working perfectly.

We can just as well delete these board files because we are
confident that we will fix them to a working state if people
are able to test patches.

I am holding back the following boards for now:

- Gateway 7001 - because Zoltan is working on this board and
  needs more time. He might need to test things with the board
  file so let's allow him time for that.

- Goramo MLR - the consensus is to replace this with a dry
  coded device tree, but the bindings for that tree need some
  more time to make so we keep the boardfile around until
  we can merge a complete device tree for it.

After these two (target v5.16) we can delete the remaining
board files and the old mach structure along with the old PCI
