The following is a list of files and features that are going to be
removed from the U-Boot source tree. Every entry should contain what
exactly is going away, when it will be gone, why it is being removed,
-and who is going to be doing the work. When the feature is removed
+and who is going to be doing the work. When the feature is removed
from U-Boot, its corresponding entry should also be removed from this
+When: After Release 2011.03
+Why: The implementation of U-Boot for the ARM architecture has
+ been reworked to support relocation. This allows to
+ efficiently use the same U-Boot binary image on systems with
+ different RAM sizes, and brings the implementation much more
+ in line with the code used for example on Power Architecture
+ systems (eventually allowing to merge into common code). This
+ seems especailly interesting now that ARM is getting Device
+ Tree support as well.
+ All ARM boards need to be adapted to this new code, which
+ requires testing on the actual hardware, so this is a task
+ for the respective board maintainers or other users.
+ Please see the commit message of commit f1d2b31 for details:
+ http://git.denx.de/?p=u-boot.git;a=commit;h=f1d2b31
+ Support for CONFIG_SYS_ARM_WITHOUT_RELOC will be removed
+ after release v2011.03; all boards that have not been
+ converted by then, i. e. that are still broken then, are
+ considered unmaintained and without interest for the
+ community and will be removed as well.
When: Release 2009-11
